I am going on a culinary/dessert adventure soon to Europe (alone). France will be a major part of the trip, Paris of course, Lyon, Nice ..etc.
Since France is the biggest dessert central, I would love to perfect the French specialties in the patisserie world.
I would love to hear some of my fellow chowhounders opinions on which bakeries and why they are your favorite!
I am planning on also interviewing the master chefs in some of the bakeries in France.
I personally love and wish to perfect Croissants (in baking). I'm close but still need practice.
Macarons, however, I have perfect.
