on Monday evening my friend Sarah and i
were going to meet our good friends
Scott and Irene for a meal in a
restaurant in Oxford.
Unfortunately the plans got changed and
we ate at their place as Irene was
not feeling too good.
After the meal, they said shall we just go for
coffee, great idea , then we can head home.
Scott said “You are going to love the Cafe Noir”
As we walked along we passed a beautiful
Chocolatiers… Coco Noir, of course it was
closed, I can always go back I thought.
In the window was some beautiful tins, I would
love one of those, and some Artisan Limonade!
Pictures on the walls of the Cafe!!
and a delightful dessert
Unfortunately I am going to
have to go back, as some of
my photos did not come out….
Good Excuse !!
or for some
Apple pie, which is a
German recipe ..mmm
During the evening I got talking to
the owner and I think is wife (not sure)
all about where they came from (he came from Iran),
how long they had been in England etc etc ..
then I started talking about my blog, and that is why I
would like the photos!!
After 5 mins or so he said “he owned another shop”,
I thought he meant a cafe/wine bar……….NO..
I did not know what to say really, , and started to say about the
beautiful tins in the window.. He said can you come back tomorrow
and I WILL give you one of the tins…. YOU CAN CHOOSE..
I said “ unfortunately I can only come back next week.. thank you .
HE said …”do you have time now? Of course thank you so much..
He picked up his keys, I left my friends totally bemused.. and he took
me to his shop and let me choose one of his fantastic tins!!
Of course I had to chose one with Paris and as we (hubby) have been
to Le Touquet too, it seemed like the right choice!
full of BUTTER WAFFLES..
The tin is very special, so I will treasure it!
A big thank you to Majid Yazdani ..
I will have to go back to Coco Noir and taste
his delightful GELATO!!
There are kind and thoughtful people out there.
