It was heaven and it was hell! A receiving line of white coated chefs complete with toques applauded me as I made my way through the golden gates of sweets. Awaiting my arrival; a plethora of sweets, a variety that easily exceeded 250 unique preparations, from the 4 corners of the earth, prepared by the best pastry chefs in the world, laid out by region and indicated by monumental sculptures of pure chocolate and all I had was 2 hours and one stomach.
From the cavalcade of welcoming chefs to the key note speech from Francois Payard, the evening was magical, the sweets insanely delicious and the crowd was very French!!
