Jour de Nutella


World Nutella Day


Today you can celebrate "World Nutella Day 2013" - a day to eat Nutella, to spread it on a croissant or a baguette.  If you are in a hurry, you can just eat it off a big spoon.


There are probably hundred of ways to use Nutella and if you have something special in mind like Nutella Baklava, a Nutella Gooey Butter Cake, or Nutella Mascarpone Chocolate Tarts, just let me know and I will send you a link to recipes.  


Whether the "day" of Nutella is celebrated in Paris or not, 
you cannot miss seeing the big brown jar wherever crêpes are made. 


miam-miam

Oh Wow! I didn't know that there is a World Nutella Day. I can't wait to tell my son, he'll go nuts eating nutella today and I won't stop him, just for today.

Vreni said...

Hello Genie:
We love the photograph, adore croissants and coffee but are, we regret to say, less certain about the 'Nutella' which, as far as we know, has yet to cross the borders here in any significant quantity.

ALAIN said...

Ce qu'il faudrait faire, c'est un jour sans Nutella.

WeekendAbstrait said...

j'aime beaucoup tes photos en noir et blanc, belle prisse de vue!
Bonne journée à toi Genie.
Bises Cath.

WeekendAbstrait said...

Ce que je trouve intéressant sur ce cliché c'est qu'il y a bien les croissants!

Janey and Co. said...

I actually try to keep it out of the house...since the big spoon suggestion is not new to me. Yum!

Holly said...

Yea for World Nutella Day!
I am about to try out the Nutella Cinnamon Rolls to take to work (so I don't eat them all!)...though I might have to make again soon if they are as good as they look!

M said...

Nutella (instead of almond butter) on wheat toast for me today :)! I have to say that I love the shiny reflections in your photo! Beautifully staged and captured!!!

Bring on Nutella Day, I say. Excellent idea. Not that I need a special celebration to enjoy Nutella, on toasted bread; on a spoon; or - in case of an emergency - on my finger! :-) Veronique (French Girl in Seattle)

Our local café Mornings in Paris has a huge jar of Nutella on the counter that i think she is selling! I've never had it & assume it is a sweet spread...?. Your photo is charming, as always, Rita

Daryl said...

seems apropos to be eating a danish while reading this .. non?

Bibi said...

Yum. I'm a spoon person.

Kristie Franklin said...

This is a staple in our house. Husband loves to spread it on graham crackers with a swipe of peanut butter. I used to eat it right off the spoon or on a croissant. Either way I love it!

JoeinVegas said...

I have a big jar at home - will try some tonight.

Alexa said...

Cause for celebration for sure! And since there's really only one way to celebrate Nutella Day, I'll bet a bunch of us will be enjoying it one way or another today. Miam!

Erika said...

I always eat it off a big spoon. Bisou

Virginia said...

I should have gone out and bought a big jar and eaten the whole thing today in celebration........but I didn't.

You forgot to mention your divine macarons with Nutella butter cream filling! Miam miam!

Jack said...

World Nutella Day? I missed that one.

Mary said...

Gosh! So super duper yummy!

Randy said...

Bread, my weakness.

Genie -- Paris and Beyond said...

Alain, that will be tomorrow!

Italy is the birthplace of Nutella, a chocolate and hazelnut spread, slightly creamier than peanut butter. It goes on just about anything and there is nothing better than having just a small taste on a 4 o'clock spoon or even smaller, a demitasse spoon.

But, I baked a sweet treat with Nutella today and left it with my daughter. Too much temptation to have in my house!

Now the macarons with Nutella buttercream filling.... miam-miam!

Bises,
Genie

TheChieftess said...

Well darn...yesterday I had a ham and cheese croissant...no nutella!!!

Starman said...

Don't like Nutella!

PerthDailyPhoto said...

Oh if only I had known Genie, that would have been a great excuse for buying a jar..any other time I daren't, I have no will power at all!

Louise said...

I'm so looking forward to trying a Nutella crepe in Paris this year. Til then I'm avoiding the Nutella.

Devons-nous suivre un jeu de piste pour trouver la jarre de Nutella. De quoi avoir le temps de faire palpiter nos papilles, en imagination !?

Je suis fan de Nutella, crème de noisette au chocolat. Magnésium bon pour le moral... même si mon moral n'est jamais à plat !

Fabrizio Zanelli said...

oh I missed it even if Nutella (with accent on "u" and not on "a" as said in French), is made few km from home :-((
