I’m sure there are a few women watching who look at dainty Rachel Khoo in her great clothes (such lovely polka-dot dresses! Those adorable ballet cardigans!) as she potters around her dolly-sized Paris kitchen and think: “I want her life.”
It’s enviable; not just the groovy, weeny apartment/bedsit, but all those lovely markets with their fresh fish and great vegetables, and the bakeries. Rachel visits a baguette-making expert (and there is an art to it) and has a go at baking a loaf for herself, before she heads home to make lovely, gooey-looking oeufs en cocotte with a sliced baguette, naturellement. And as for the oozy chocolate dessert… très bon.
The pastry chef continues to display her passion and flair for the cuisine of Paris as she tries to prove that simple cooking can produce sensational results. In this episode, she enlists the expertise of a local baker to help her prepare baguettes, puts her own twist on a traditional boeuf Bourguignon, and creates a chocolate sponge oozing with salted caramel.
