Patagonian souvenirs

- How was it?
- My holidays in Patagonia? Cold, magnificient, delicious

I saw stunning landscapes, hiked a lot, met lovely people, had my lips cracked by the cold, saw whales and pinguins, crossed a giant country by bus, took millions of pictures of my teddy bear Chocolat, and... ate delicious food!

Argentinians master the arts of producing and cooking meat, and baking.
There are completely obsessed with dulce de leche (dense caramel sauce made from condensed milk) that they feature in every single baked good. 
But they also know how to bake really good cheesecakes (ricotta tart) and brownies (with dulce de leche, of course). 
I also fell in love for their empanadas. 

"Were your holidays about sport or food?" asked my dad. At Pauline a la crème anglaise, it's always a bit of both!

I can't wait to share some of the recipes I've brought back with you. In the meantime, here are some pictures!


  1. I love it! Great pictures which camera did you use??

    1. Thank you Chiara! My camera is a Nikon D80 with a 24-85 lense.

  2. Why the teddy bear didn't wear a warm coat ? wasn't he cold ? ;-)

    1. No he's never cold, I think he might be a polar bear ;-)

  3. Les photos sont magnifiques avec le petit ours :)
