Versailles… TV??

*In case* you missed the exciting news, French producers are launching a new television series about the reign of Louis XIV, aka, the Sun King. It’s called ‘Versailles’ and it’s meant to be France’s answer to shows like The Tudors, or The Borgias—you can read more about it on Salon. Apparently it cost around $30 million to produce, the most ever spent on a French TV show.  So. There’s no excuse for the pastries to not be up to the standards set by Sophia Coppola in Marie Antoinette. (Marie Antoinette, for reference, married the Sun King’s great-great-great-grandson.)
