Poilâne



One benefit of renting an apartment on rue du Cherche - Midi was that Poilâne's flagship boulangerie was just a few doors down the street. I wrote ahead requesting permission to photograph and quel surprise, they granted me a short appointment. Down the winding steps to the ovens that have been baking their famous round sourdough loaves with the signature P since 1932. Of course we took home a loaf and enjoyed the hearty break with beurre et fromage every night! Merci to the friendly employees who allowed us to have a look around and take some photographs. A Paris experience I won't forget.

Oh gosh, this brings back memories. The last time I was there I did a one day course at the Cordon Bleu and it included a tour of Poilane. What a wonderful (and tasty) experience.
