Excerpt from the introduction by Pascal Rigo:
"Our days begin with bread and pastry, and our life is filled with the aroma of the bakery... My kids breathe in those smells. They see the importance of hard work, the value of respect for the customer, and most of all, the beautiful results that simplicity and authenticity can bring. Those are the gifts I want most to give to them... and I hope this book will also give you a taste of our passion."
