I will be in Paris in October – looks like I’m going to do a carb tour! Fantastic list, well done!

Yay – Love the Grenier a Pain! You might also want to try their fantastic Pain d’Epices…

Nothing like an award winning baguette! Had no idea they compete. Amazing! Makes me really hungry too!
Cheers,

I cannot wait to get back to Paris to have some real baguettes… we just don’t make them the same way here.

Thanks for the info- now I know where to go!

Let them eat Baguettes! Thanks for the list … a must save.
