Folderol Ice Cream Shop (and Wine Bar)

It used to be that if you wanted ice cream in Paris, you went to Berthillon. While there were other notable places on my list (circa 2007), if you wanted a scoop of ice cream after dark in other parts of the cities, you were out of luck.

This Saturday, a group of bakers in Paris will be gathering for a bake sale in support of La Ligue des droits de l’Homme, a human rights organization in France that fights for the rights of victims of discrimination and racism, as well as other inequalities.

I’ll be there from 1 to 3pm with copies of L’Appart in hardcover and paperback. Each sale will include a homemade chocolate chip cookie with 100% of the book (and cookie) sales donated to the Ligue des droits de l’Homme.

In addition, I am offering original copies of Room for Dessert and Ripe for Dessert in brand-new condition for sale as well. Quantities of these books will be very limited since they are out-of-print.

For the event, proper hygiene will be respected in line with French government recommendations. See you then!
