Do you ever think: Enough with all these homestyle bakeries. The reason all this stuff is so homey is cause it's easy to make at home. Anyone can do it without hours of labour and a sink full of dishes. Thats the whole point. I LIKE cupcakes and chocolate chip cookies but I can throw them together without too much trouble so i'm probrably not going to go out and buy them and even if I do it probrably will feel a little like a waste of money and not be as good. How about some great dainty fancy delicate sophisticated pastry that you're not going to make at home unless you're in a really masochistic mood. How about lots and lots of places like that insted. Do you hear me New York bakers? Get to it. Paris is far away.
