We get through:-

  • Winter in Le Manoir

  • Born to be in Pastry
  • Committed parents
  • Learning bread
  • Changing perceptions
  • The Financier
  • The process of pastry
  • Creating new dishes

  • Bakers Shop to Restaurant to Hotel
  • The Ritz Paris
  • Being bad at home
  • Investing in yourself
  • Progress
  • Competitions & The Pastry World Cup
  • TV
  • Bagpipes

Once again, there’s all manner of lessons in here and Benoit is a natural story teller, retelling his journey with humour and charisma all the way through.
