A new turn, a new beginning…..

4 weeks….well almost! Since my last post!

There have been some huge changes in my life recently and I’ve been desperate to share it with you all! I’ve missed blogging last few weeks and missed visiting your lovely blogs more-so. As they say, it’s better to be late than never.
So, here I go with filling you in on the latest in my life.

Firstly, I’ve started school again! After 8 years, I am back to school and this time I’m pursuing something I am most passionate about! Pastry! Not just pastry, it gets better, it’s ProfessionalΒ French Patisserie! Secondly, the school I am going to is in Paris, in the heart of the city, and I am going to be here for a year! I cannot begin to tell you how excited I am to be here and pursue my dream in a city of dreams!

A little bit more about my school, I am studying at Ferrandi. It’s a pretty old one, being established in 1920 and a good study environment. We have a huge deal of focus on practical learning making almost 2 desserts each day. Which means I have more than I can even give away! No complaints… πŸ˜‰

This is going to be quite a short post, but i want to share with you some pictures and experiences. I barely visited places this time around as I was just settling in and also the long hours at school leave little time for the exploring. As I had already visited most of the tourist places last winter, I am going slow on the sight seeing part. πŸ˜‰ Nevertheless, I’d love to share some of my experiences through pictures.

Did I forget to mention that I’m terrible with french! I have started to learn… i hope to get a hang of it soon enough if not sooner… πŸ˜€

On a separate note, we have started with tarts at school and have made quite a few of them now. I’m just getting into my rhythm again and going to post updates from school and Paris quite frequently now. More importantly, going to be visiting your blogs regularly too and love to chat with you all again!

Sorry.. couldn't help but post this one!

PS: Apologies for too many an exclamations here and there, I simply cannot contain my excitement! πŸ˜‰
