Have you ever had that one unforgettable delight on your trip abroad that even years later keeps on living in your mind, like it’s haunting you, but in a delicious, non-threatening way?! You might even often find yourself daydreaming about the first ever bite and feeling of utterly delicious shock - you didn’t expect it to taste so good. Well, if you ever had French Madeleines, we’re sure you already know what we are talking about. Marcel Proust, a famous French author, even wrote lengthily about how tea-dipped Madeleines reminded him of his childhood.
