Europe: Beaune diary FRANCE

Wine capital of Burgundy, Beaune is an ancient medieval town that is not overly buzzing like other cities such as Paris or Bordeaux. We strolled around the town for a good hour, inhaling as much as possible.

Quiche - a savoury shortcrust pastry filled with bacon.

Paris Brest - choux pastry enveloping a layer of cream and given a good dusting of icing sugar to sweeten up the deal.

Kouign amann - croissant like pastry with a lovely sugary caramelization around it.
