PASTRY CHEF: You're Married To Your Job First

About this video 

François, a pastry chef, spends his typical day making desserts and bread and planning what he will be making for the next day. He began his culinary career at the age of 15 in Paris, and was an executive chef by 22. After moving to America, he had to start over in the kitchen hierarchy because he was not yet fluent in English. Now he has worked his way back up and spends long hours preparing baked goods in the kitchen.
