Not in Paris they are not , but you should see the strawberries and the size of The asparagus , three time the thickness of what we get at home fresh.
There are 4 patisseries with 50 metres of my apartment, quiche to die for , do the French know how to use custard they do indeed, interesting to see not much cream apparent on /in pastries… not a complaint though.
