I remember camping in France about 7 years ago. It’s not as romantic as it sounds – we had set off for 10 days camping without checking the weather. What I do recall very fondly though was the honking horn of the boulanger delivering fresh bread and pastries to hungry campers. I loved the idea that it was OK to sleep on the ground in a tent, but there was no need to take the basics away like fresh bread and pastries for breakfast!
After a couple of trips to France, I have come to the conclusion that I couldn’t live there as I wouldn’t be able to resist the boulangerie with all its tasty goodies and would therefore be about the size of a tent myself.
But, on weekends when I have time, there is something to be said for the ritual of eating a fresh pastry with a nice big cup of coffee and the paper in a sunny window of home.
So, where to go for the best pastries in town? Hit me!
