The more you know, the more you realize you know nothing. – Socrates
There couldn’t be a more poignant quote to begin the baking section of this post. The doors of my baking knowledge have been swung open. The more skills, techniques and recipes I take in, the more I realize how much there is to learn about French patisseries. Even with the awareness of how much I still need to learn, I’m in love with every second I bake.
Last weekend we were off on Saturday and Sunday, 2 whole days without baking, come Monday, I couldn’t wait to get back into class and get my hands in some butter and vanilla.
Here is a small round up of what I have been baking:
My Favorite Chef / teacher at Cordon Bleu :D
Other than baking my priority in Paris is restaurants and food.
Dubai does a pretty good job of delivering on the big branded, glitzy restaurants therefore in Paris, I seem to be drawn towards the midlevel, semi casual, but Oh So Good restaurants that Dubai desperately lacks.
Because I am blessed with fabulous foodie locals with amazing recommendations I have yet to be disappointed with a restaurant.

POILANE + MY PLACE
I’m not a sight seeing type of girl. I believe that if you truly want to get to know the place you’re in you should walk the its streets, speak to its locals and yes most importantly eat its food.
With that in mind, my sight seeing part of Paris will probably be limited to the Tour Eiffel and the Sacre Coeur mainly for their views. This is what I saw…
I hope you enjoyed seeing the ever so beautiful Paris through my eyes.
More to come soon… anywhere in particular you love in Paris that I must taste or see? Let me know!
