One of my favorite things to do while in Paris is to have a pastry like a pain chocolate or a pain au raisin in the mornings before I go to the fashion shows or appointments I might have.

Isn’t that such a luxury? The art of making bread and pastries seems unsurpassed to France. One of my favorite boulangerie’s in Paris is just down the street from Merci, and I always make it a point to stop in while I’m there.

The French pastries are always wrapped up like presents and each time you open them you feel like it’s a special treat.

I love at the end of the day how you see people walking around Paris with a baguette under their arm, taking it home for dinner. I also love that picking up your daily bread is a regular thing that many people do, which is very different than the states.

You often see people riding their bikes home with a baguette tucked into the basket.

I learned from some of my friends that you have to train for 2-3 years before working in the boulangerie. Learning the subtle nuances of making the daily bread.

What’s your favorite pastry or bread?
