A rose by any other name....


These little doughnuts without a hole are simply called 'mini-krofne' (mini doughnuts) here, but their counterparts in France are called 'pets de nonne' or nun's puffs, a euphemism for 'nun's farts'. They're so light and airy. ;)

YANKEE IN NICE

 Edit: pastis is a licorice-flavored alcoholic drinksimilar to Greek ouzo. My favorite drink as it is for many people in this area. No more ...
