Surviving Paris on coffee at Ten Belles

Here’s how Xavier Cotte welcomed our group to Le Cordon Bleu, „We want to congratulate you for your courage. You applied for the intensive session. We believe you have no idea what you signed up for.“
Well, I have to give them this: 40 hours of new input a week is, in fact, intense. With practising and studying on the side, I find myself in desperate need for a lot of coffee. Luckily, Ten Belles is only a short stroll away, and as the coffee in the rest of Paris is pretty much undrinkable, I’m stopping by often, and it has become one of those places where you suddenly feel at home, without really knowing why.
