I enjoy France vicariously through your wonderful podcasts. The historical information is very interesting and the rapport between the girls is natural and entertaining. A truly quality product I look forward to listening to. Thank you.

Annie,

When my wife and I were in Beaune, Burgundy in 1999 we ate the most delicious pastry. It was cylinder shaped, with chocolate powder on the outside covering a layer of chocolate, which was covering a layer of what must have been marzipan and then finally a cream-like inside. We returned in 2005 and ate it again. There were no names and I was too shy to ask what it was. Is this something that is common or that you recognize?

Thanks, Matt
