Paris seen by chef Sadaharu Aoki

It is the turn of the master pastry and cake maker Sadaharu Aoki to tell us about his love story with the French capital and his profession – part gourmet delight and part work of art.

She wears them “casual chic” or “elegant cool,” from morning to night, during the week or on the weekend, from the kitchen to the meeting room, at an opening in Saint-Germain-des-Prés or riding a bicycle through the streets of the French capital…
