Five months in Paris have passed. I’ve had five months of pastry training in school and I have gained a kilo for each month. These five months were most definitely the fastest five months in my life. Everything went super fast. Days, classes (except for wine class which always seem to take 10 hours) and gaining weight. Oh well. #YOLO? No, I have a plan. I’m going back home for 1,5 months, will eat healthier and workout more (which is easy because right now, me working out is equal to none).
I haven’t updated my blog about school for a long time now. I don’t think I will blog about those weeks or maybe months anymore. Instead, I will tell you what I did last week and what I will do after this week.
Monday, last week, we had our final exam. This exam consisted of us making an apple tart, eclairs and religieuses in 5 hours. Everything went well but, my apple tart crimping edge still needs improvement. Tuesday we had a day of nothing, at school. The only thing I remembered is drinking some champagne that day.
Wednesday we went on the trip I would have never had, if it wasn’t for school…… Sounds logical right? Well. I would never plan this trip myself or something similar. It was simply really boring. Maybe the fact that we were surrounded by people of 70+ had something to do with it too. Here are some pictures of grass and water I have seen in those three days. I will save you the pictures of the food, not that impressing. Day 1 dinner was even the worst meal I have ever eaten…
The last day we went to a city called Étretat. We only spend ~1,5 hours here, but I would have rather had spent the three days here.. At least this little town has a nice view! I wouldn’t mind the boat ride here… (The first boat ride was in between grass fields and peoples gardens and on the second boat ride I slept)
So that was my – not so – awesome final school trip and now I have vacation. Monday I bought ice cream from L’Éclair de Genie and today I went shopping in the soldes (summer sale). If you are in Paris in summer, try this ice cream! I highly recommend spending your €6,50 on this pricey but very delicious ice cream. The ice cream is very creamy with a nice salted caramel flavor. On top is an in-chocolate-dipped eclair filled with salted caramel and ice cream. yum yum yum….. :3
This weekend I will leave Paris and will go back to The Netherlands. I will bake for my relatives to celebrate my birthday and will be open for business if anyone wants to order a cake! Or cookies, candies, confitures.. 😉 I will get back to posting recipes on the blog this summer too!
Half August, I will return to Paris for my internship at a palace hotel!7
