It is Sunday night and I am trying to get myself ready for my review week at school before my exam. The problem is my brain is still on a high from such a perfect Saturday in Paris! I usually head back to Belgium after school on Friday’s however this week the trains weren’t running as usual. Instead of going home, C drove here on Friday afternoon to spend the weekend in France and Saturday in Paris.
Finally made it to week 8 of my running program! I have started the same program at least 3 times now and have never made it this far. Typically as soon as I miss one running session I give up on the whole thing entirely. NOT THIS TIME!

Turns out the only thing the French love more than going on strike (ugh) is soccer. Oops. I mean football.
I was looking back over some old posts and couldn’t believe how long ago my pastry school update was! It feels like just yesterday that school was starting and it’s hard to imagine that we’ve only got three weeks of classes left before review and exam. So, on that note I thought I’d share a bit of what I’ve been up to the last few months!
I survived my first two weeks of pastry school! Week one was an introduction to the school and Maison Lenôtre, as well as a visit to the largest food market in the world in Rungis, and seeing the kitchen of the Pré Catelan, the 3 Michelin Star restaurant run by Chef Frédéric Anton, MOF (Best Craftsman of France).
