Let’s admit it. There is nothing in the world that beats a good croissant for breakfast. But how hard is it to find a good one. Even in France they are not all good. But when they are ahhhh! Everytime when I arrive in Charles de Gaulle, the first thing I do is go to “Paul” and buy croissants for my husband and son, and the delicious Pain au Chocolat for me and my daughter. I don’t eat in the plane to save place for this, and it immediately mekas me feel at home (although France is not my home).
Today I was strolling -hungry- when I passed a ‘boulangerie’, called “L’epie”. The name suggesting that it is French made me go inside and try the Pain au Chocolat and the Croissant. I couldn’t wait till I got home to try them and ate them both before I arrived at the end of the block. They were delicious! The croissant comes as close to a French Croissant as possible, and the Pain au Chocolat is worth killing for!
Immediately I walked back, bought a bagette (which we will try tonight) and a Brioche. I am afraid that from now on I will walk 10 blocks to go to ‘my’ bakery.
Reading the Webpage I understand. The 2 bakers are French, one of them worked (among other places) in the most prestigious Belgian Patiserie “Wittamer”. He and his partners aren’t just anybody when it comes to bakeries.

I walk 40!
