Every country has a tradition of sweet desserts, but what makes French pasties so famous? On today’s show we are taking you on a Tour de France in Pastries, and specifically the pastries of the south of France. As you probably know, pâtisseries are to die for in France, and that’s because there is a rich regional tradition for making the prettiest and tastiest desserts possible. When I lived in America I realized something important: in France it’s not enough to make a beautiful pastries, it has to taste out of this world too! Let’s sink our teeth in French pastries today!

French people don’t eat pâtisseries every day, but when we do, we seek the best. We tell you all about it in today’s show and the topic is so large that we divided it up in two shows. Today we concentrate on the pastries of Southern France, next week we go North. Enjoy!
