Italian ice cream in Tokyo

Only in Paris can you find so many elegant chocolatiers – on Rue du Faubourg Saint-Honoré alone there are a dozen. One of my favorites is Pierre Hermé. The fine chocolates are packaged in little beautiful boxes which make perfect presents. In summer I love the raspberry macaron with fresh raspberries and flavored with Persian rosewater.

I enjoy an after-dinner ice cream at Grom in the very stylish neighborhood of Shinjuku in Tokyo. The Italian ice cream maker just recently opened a branch in Tokyo and was welcomed by the slow food movement in Japan. All ingredients are of course organic and freshly made and the clientele is very fashionable.

MUNICH

When in Munich my
favorite store to look
for the best selection
of clothes is THERESA.
The staff is competent
and always has the
