5-months-in-Paris-6

5 months in Paris

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.

Rungis

School trip to Rungis

This (very early) morning we went to Rungis. Rungis is a town near Paris with the largest food (wholesale) market called Marché d’Intérêt National de Rungis. The market is open from 1am to 7am. So we had to meet near school at 4:30am!! Around 5 o’clock we arrived at the market and went into the fish hall. It’s not the most pleasant smell at 5 in the morning..
