Everybody Paris

Paris Everybody

After a couple of days of what felt like autumn rains, it has cleared and feels like a lovely spring day. Sun is out and a cool breeze is blowing. Everybody wants to be to Paris.

Judging by the contrails in the sky, it is quite busy up there.

It was a public holiday yesterday, and what better way to spend the day, than strolling through Parisian markets.

Markets for sheets and pillows, and soaps …..

… or balcony greenery and accessories …

…and fruits and vegetables …

Who doesn’t want to start cooking or baking? I can come up with at least a hundred recipes for theses goodies.

And then there is the music. Every street corner has them. Some do it well …

Some do it better than others

And others just do it. But everybody does music.

… born in Upper Austria’s Wels, I have done most of my growing up in Vienna. Only by sheer accident did I fall into the trade of Pâtissier. After a short apprentice ship at a Viennese Bakery, I was accepted for apprentice ship, at "K.u.K. Hofzuckerbäcker Demel’s Söhne", one of the oldest patisseries in Vienna. Learning the trade from the very basics, as the Emperor two Centuries ago would have expected from a "Pâtissier to the Royal and Imperial Court" (That is what the older Pâtissier still calls himself). I soon took to travel the world. From patisseries in America, to hotels in the Far East, Africa and the Middle East, did I accumulate a wealth of experience, ranging from bakeries to first class restaurants in major hotels to banquets for Presidents, Sultans and Heads of States and other famous, infamous and not so famous people. But the true excitement for me is in the "Viennese Café". Not just as an occupation, but as an institution in it own right.
