I woke up in a cold sweat this morning as it dawned upon me that I am yet to write about Du Pain et Des Idées on this blog. It’s a rather shameful confession, I must admit.

Christophe Vasseur is one of the best bakers in Paris. His shop, Du Pain et Des Idées, is where the geeks go. It’s very common to see people queueing – even in freezing temperatures – to get their hands on his baked goods.

If you’re the kind of person who gets excited when you hear words such as organic flour, sourdough starters and super-long fermentation times, this will become your mecca.

Must try: the croissant au beurre (of course!) and the Pain des Amis… oh and pick me up an escargot chocolat-pistache while you’re there! It’s the most divine thing I’ve eaten recently. No kidding.

And you see how the rind is coming away from the centre...? It's a perfect example of a surface ripened, bloomy rind #cheese.

Jura – still so much to be discovered

I was in the Jura region last month on a quick getaway with my boyfriend and the dog. It was not my first time in the region, but it was my first stay long enough to develop a decent understanding of the land, its people and their wine. The Jura is in a small pocket […]
