canelés de bordeaux are petite pastries with a carmelized crust and cake-like interior. when i was in france, i spent a good deal of time munching on macarons and eating italian-style ice cream, but had been told by a few friends that i simply had to have canelés while i was in the city most famous for them.
my friend jerome scribbled out a map to get to baillardran, a bakery in bordeaux that specializes in canelés.
while i was there, i picked up a handful of canelés and several different macarons. violet, mimosa, almond, raspberry, chocolate, and rose.
