Introduction/ Why am I Doing This Project?

I am baking macarons, I have been working on them for nearly an hour. I take them out of the oven, and…they are still not done! As you might know, baking requires patience and perfection, and macarons take the most.
Most bakers set very high standards, but what about French baking? Well, they have extremely high standards.

I am doing this project because I have always loved baking. But I thought that doing just baking was too widespread, and I knew I had to narrow my topic down, I asked myself, ‘What could I do to narrow my topic?’ I thought about millions of options, and I was thinking about just doing my topic on ballet because I couldn’t decide what to do. I was still considering when I started thinking about my heritage, specifically my French heritage. I thought, I do love croissants...So I decided why don 't I do my project on French baking? I love talking about baking, even just saying the word ‘cupcake’ will get my mouth watering!

In this paper I will be talking about:
My person of interest (Julia Child)
The people I interviewed
Croissants
Tarts
Macarons
The difference between Macarons and Macaroons (Macarons vs. Macaroons)

I have learned many things from this project, I will never eat a croissant the same again! I hope I have taught you something about French baking, if not, I hope I at least entertained you. But what makes French baking special or stand out from regular baking? Well, French baking is intricate, Laure (the person I interviewed) said that French bakers mainly focus on taste, because it has to be perfect, before focusing on anything else like presentation. So I guess you could say that French bakers just have much higher standards, and their pastries are more intricate and complex. That was the main question I haVe been wondering about, and I am glad to finally have answered
