This is a mouth-watering interview with Nans, a young and talented chef patissier in Melbourne, Australia. His pastries are very traditional: they are exactly the same ones, the same flavours and the same taste as the pastries you would find in any city or village in France… I love them! For Christmas, Nans is also making the “bûche de Noël”, THE traditional French Christmas dessert.
