les chinois ŕ paris

Les Chinois a Paris is a wild, sarcastic French comedy by the irrepressible director/writer/actor Jean Yanne about what would happen to Paris and Parisians if Chinese Maoists invaded France. This rebellious satire (ideally to be seen on a double bill with Godard's "La Chinoise") makes fun of very delicate political matters. There are plenty of innuendos about French collaborationism during WWII, but then it's almost always true that any occupying forces in a foreign culture will eventually engage in corruption and shady businesses, while some of the invaded natives will always find a way of profiting from the status quo. The subject is common to every invasion/ domination ever taken place (including right now you know where)...

Chinois Aux Pralines Roses

Chinois Aux Pralines Roses

For "Vegetarian Magazine", January 2011 Edition.
I don't know how to translate this recipe : Chinois doesn't mean "Chinese person" here, it's a kind of brioche made of several rolls.
Inside I put pink caramelized almonds we call in France Praline & there's a very sweet marzipan layer inside the rolls.
