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?
