Window-Licking Paris  France

Window-Licking

Here at the très chic Boulangerie Fauchon, on the Place de la Madeleine in the heart of Paris, the loaves can look almost too good to eat.

In French, the idiomatic equivalent for 'window-shopping' is "leche-vitrine," which literally means 'window-licking'—appropriate for staring in the storefront of a bakery on a cold February day!
