Pierre Vermeren “The metropolises are cut off from the rest of the territory”

In your last book, you draw a relentless observation of the effects of metropolization. How did we get here ?The great geographical and socio-historical particularity of France is obviously the Parisian phenomenon. For a very long time, France has had an extraordinary capital.

There aren't a ton of raisins inside your brioche dough either, but that doesn't stop you from discovering a heart of wonderful braised strawberries -or strawberries-; and more now that they begin to appear in seasonal orchards. Actually, these scones originating in England are typical of Easter; Its most recognizable characteristic - in addition to those mentioned in the previous paragraph - is that white cross that appears above each one; while they cook in the oven all together in a mold, making each ball of dough stick to the other.
