Meg Zimbeck for Budget Travel (2010) “The pain au levain, or sourdough bread, is a simple but delicious option…”

The Girl Who Ate Everything (2008) “I went to Gosselin one Sunday morning (a time when many bakeries are closed) just to try its famed baguette. And it was awesome: chewy, crusty, and full of warm grainy flavors. I also tried a croissant and pain aux raisins, neither of which did much for my taste buds.”

  1. The shop is called George s Larnicol and is one of my favorite places to go as well. Be sure to try the caramels!

  2. i was just in paris and am obsessed by a pastry/ chocolate shop on the blvd st germain, just down the street from le comptoir, on the other side of the blvd. the whole window is full of these little rolled pastries called something like kouigette. i can’t remember the name of the shop or the pastry, anyone have any idea what im taking about?
    merci!
