05 Jan Bread, Sarlat-la-Canéda
We went to the Saturday markets and tried a pastry called Jesuit (€1.50), which was quite a thick layer of puff pastry filled with almond custard. Sort of like vanilla slice.
The towns we were going to visit after lunch were small, so we’d have a better chance of getting something to eat in Sarlat. We went into a bakery in a laneway near the Christmas market. It appeared that they were closing soon. Mum got a bag of 3 croissants and a chocolate twist for €2. I bought a champagne rustique for €1.50. The pricetag said the bread was €2.50, but they must have been trying to get rid of the bread. I also noticed the pricetags said ‘Banette’ on them so I wonder if they’re delivered. The rustic bread was dense and meaty. Mum claimed it was her favourite bread so far. I liked it, but not as much as the pain aux noix from Le Fournil Maxipaul.
