Europain 2010 – which can be described as an international bread fair or bread festival – took place the week I was in Paris. Since I was very busy with my Mom, I couldn’t attend any of the events but I did sneak in one afternoon with a friend. We tasted a lot of different breads (including some from mixes which were amazingly good) and I couldn’t resist taking a few pictures:
Well, we didn't meet there! I was around on March 6 and 7 in the morning.
Guess what, I met Flo! I never met her before, I've just seen the photo on her site … but when I saw a woman asking so many things about sourdough to a baker, I said – it must be her!
Must be a great expo to visit…may be I can go there one day.
Those " cheeses " are excellent. What can I say…I love cheese, I love bread, why should not have 2 in 1 🙂
I must found out how they were made!
Thanks for keeping us informed and for all the info on your site!
The croissants weren't made by an apprentice but by the French candidate of the Masters de la boulangerie !!! He's far from being an apprentice (lucky guy…)
Nice pictures MC !
@Giovanni, sorry I missed you but I had so little time! It's great that you met Flo…
@Julian, I too would love to know how to make such realistic cheese out of bread!
@Marie-Christine, I changed the post accordingly. Yes, the "croissants" were too amazingly light to be anything but the work of a champion. Thank you!
