David Lebovitz takes a trip to Fouquet:

What intrigued me most were watching the confectioners at work. I love candymaking and have a lot of respect for these folks who are keeping alive an art that's not widely practiced anymore. I mean, there's not many people making hand-crafted candy anymore. It's hard work, exacting, and the slightest change in weather or humidity can ruin hours of exacting work.

Lebovitz's post is a beautiful photo essay on the process and definitely worth clicking through.
