Life can bring surprises!
After over an hour train ride and 30 min car drive to small village north of Paris to meet with a specialist of black forest...
I discover the dealer's 10 year old son is quite the chef...
Mom teaches French cooking and even at 8, the young boy could prepare complete dinners including appetizer!
He welcomes me to his father's shop carrying a tray of espresso, chunks of brown sugar....and his own mini macarons in assorted flavors
I have eaten macarons from the most famous makers in Paris...and none top his.
His two younger brothers are obviously his big fans...as little hands and big smiles quickly emptied the tray.
It is moments like this that bring me to France.
