Female bakers are a little bit unusual in France, and Véronique's bakery is where it is because that is where the big brick wood fired ovens built in 1804 are. She cannot dismantle the ovens and set up shop anywhere she likes. If she wants to bake in these rather special ovens, she must make the best of her location. The area is quite residential and centred on the Parc des Buttes Chaumont so it's not like she's out in some banlieue (suburb) but it is double digits (19eme arrondissement).
You can just get a glimpse of the ovens through the open door.
The flour she uses is organic and the oven fueled by oak and ash wood. She makes a wide variety of breads and pastries. On the day we were there in September the bread selection included marjoram, fig, pepper and olives, pain de mie, brioche, fouace (made with flour, sugar, butter, eggs, walnuts, cinnamon and saffron), 100% spelt and black bread (made from rye flakes, rye sourdough and sunflower seeds) as well as the ubiquitous baguette. The bread is all sold by weight (the marjoram bread is €10.40/kg for instance).
There is a Fungi Foray on Sunday 4 November in the Foret de Preuilly. Meet at the Etang de Ribaloche at 2.00 pm. I am planning to be there and there will be expert mycologists to identify all the mushrooms picked at the end of the afternoon. The focus will be on fungi in general, not just foraging for edible varieties. €3 per person.
