La Boulangerie de San Francisco
For Valentine’s Day, La Boulangerie did a partnership with La Maison Seguin – an institution in the South West of France known for its specialty: Les Puits d’Amour aka the wells of Love. These new sweet bites will be available in San Francisco on the occasion of Valentine’s Day and be renamed Le Choux d’Amour. It’s a small gourmet choux filled with light vanilla cream & sprinkled with icing sugar.
Available from Feb. 11th and until the end of March in all stores, but be warned, the quantities are limited. Better order!
