Food52 x Maison Boissier Parisian Candy Tower
Sweets for the sweet.
What better way to celebrate a major milestone (our 10-year anniversary!) than with a collection of classic confections you can only find in our Shop? Maison Boissier has a few years on us—they’ve been making candies since 1827—and their creations are just as good today as they were when Victor Hugo declared his love for them. In this special gift set, you’ll find crispy chocolate pearls, pâte de fruit, and hard candies (how sweet!).

We're feeling a bit French today, and we thought you might be too. What'll be on our tables tonight? We're getting our vegetables in (and greens too, please) with Amy_N-B's perfectly Parisian, earthy French "Peasant" Beets. Eaten with a glass of Sancerre on the side, we could easily stop there, but tonight, we're skipping happily along to dessert. Because our night wouldn't be truly French without a little sliver of something sweet, now would it?
