Getting Started

Well, the Rosetta Stone seems to be working.  The vocabulary is coming back to me from high school.  Je m'appelle Sarah, je ne travaille pas.  (My name is Sarah, I don't work!)  I have been spending an average of two hours a day and am almost through Level One.  Looks like the next section is on Shopping - je t'aime le shopping!  

I am definitely nervous when I think about going to Le Cordon Bleu - I mean, Julia Child went there (50 years ago).  Luckily the first two patisserie sessions are taught in French, but translated simultaneously translated into English. But, the third session will be all in French.  

Why Patisserie?  It makes me happy to make things that taste good, and if I have to eat my mistakes, they may as well be chocolate or cake!  I am not sure what I will do with my diploma, the dream is to open a little French cafe, but at this point, the point is to change my perspective, try something new, and where else but Paris to do it?

  1. You don't have to explain "why Patisserie" to me! I'm so jealous of your adventure, and look forward to living vicariously through your blog :)
