The Cook’s Atelier
Often you come across things and think ‘I wish I had done that’. When this situation arises, more often than not you then also have the self-reassuring afterthought that ‘if you had done that, you would have done it better’ - you could have improved on it, you would have taken that idea further, to perfection.
Well, when I stumbled across The Cook’s Atelier during one sunny morning walk in Beaune, Burgundy, I felt something different - I felt an odd feeling of excitement mixed with envy. I had fallen upon something I had been dreaming of, something that I had fantasised about, and, in each fantasy, it looked exactly like this - all 3 floors of it.
