Paris Fridays: Au Levain D' Antan

Every year there is a baking competition across France for the top baguette in the country. The bakery that wins this distinction is able to provide their baguettes to the French government for a year! We trekked out to Au Levain D' Antan in Montemartre to try the 2011 winner and boy was it worth the trip. 

The baguette was perfectly crunchy on the outside and soft and chewy in the center. We were so delighted with our first baguette that we returned to purchase another to take back to our place for a midday snack with cheese. If you can imagine the little mouse from the movie, Ratatouille, holding the baguette and listening for the delicate crackle of the crust, that was us outside of the adorable little bakery. 

Have a fun-filled weekend!
