I'm not much a sweet tooth fairy but, for me the most exciting part of the week was going to the patisserie because it was so glamorous and exciting.
In France, any villages will have at least one or two patisseries and, mostly on Sundays, people will go and buy some cakes for the family or for guests. The patisseries are like jewellery shops, with beautiful interiors, and when you go to a patisserie in France it's almost like going to Luis Vuitton or Prada to buy an expensive handbag or jewellery. Service is sophisticated, everyone's smartly dressed; it feels special. And that atmosphere is expected - people are prepared to spend a lot of money on cakes and they understand how much work is involved. It's a highly rated profession.
