All the information about the transcripts, notes and photo is available at www.cultivateyourfrench.com
Last Sunday, it was Felicia’s birthday. We had planned to see my parents and I had ordered a Paris-Brest at Stéphane Glacier’s pâtisserie. Stéphane Glacier is a MOF, Meilleur Ouvrier de France.
The Paris-Brest is a cake that was created at the end of the 19th century by a pâtissier from Normandy to celebrate the cycle race between Paris and Brest in Brittany. It is made of pâte à choux which takes the shape of a bicycle wheel and stuffed with praline crème mousseline.
It was the first time we had to organize ourselves with the strange circumstances. And there was something we hadn’t planned, this is what you are going to hear in today’s episode.
