Finding things on the web can happen in the most unexpected ways.
Yesterday morning I checked the Blog of designer and blogger extraordinaire, Tobi Fairley. She linked to her guest post at writer - designer Kathryn Greeley's blog, The Collected Room. I had recently received a copy of Kathryn's lovely new book, The Collected Tabletop, so I was interested in seeing what she to say and whose blogs appeared on her Blogroll.
Which is how I found Paris Breakfasts ... which is how I found the amazing and scrumptious new app: Paris Pastry Shops ($4.99). The app bills itself as providing
[O]ver 300 of the best pastry, chocolate, ice cream and candy shops in Paris, hand-picked by pastry chef and author David Lebovitz.It certainly seems to deliver a lot of information, including beautiful photos and useful maps. The only thing I don't care for is the site's icon and logo.
It seems too down-market and unsophisticated in contrast to the actual content of the site. Fortunately, it disappears as soon as you start using the app.I have already found several of my favorite pastry shops in the app like Fouquet and Dalloyau. Now, I can't wait to get back to Paris and try it out on the proving ground!
