Today I woke up with one big desire: eating a good, yummy cheesecake. I don’t know what I must have dreamt the night before (?!) but I could clearly identify the object of my craving and also where to find it… Helmut Newcake at La Madeleine! I had some errands to run in the neighborhood so I told myself I could easily and happily combine the two 😉

I have been knowing Marie and François Tagliaferro, the lovely couple that created Helmut, for quite a while now and it is always nice to see them again, have a little chat around gluten free food and of course, the cheesecake! I loved the orange zest that Marie sprinkled in it. It was soft, sweet, delicious.

When the battle for the cheesecake was over, I turned myself around and I found myself surrounded by an army of chocolate eclairs, religeuses, tarts, cakes, brownies…how to defend myself?? Well, just surrender!

I left carrying in my bag, well, a brioche, some madeleines and a cannelé that, as François explained me, is typical of the Bordeaux region and it is made with the same dough used for the crepe, with the flavors of rum and vanilla. Can’t wait to be home and try it.

Bye Bye Helmut, see you soon!
