Poilane: traditional French bread since 1932 Flickr user Anneandmike

It is in the Latin Quarter that the first Poilâne bakery opened in 1932, rue du Cherche-Midi, by Pierre-León Poilâne. Pierre-León had three children, a daughter called Madeleine and two sons, Max and Lionel. Lionel, the youngest of the three, spent most of his childhood in the Latin Quarter small bakery, trained by his father at the age of 14 to become a master baker.

In 1972, Lionel took over his father and started leading the small family enterprise until he died with his wife Irena, in October 2002, in a tragic helicopter accident in Brittany. Lionel's legacy to the Poilâne bakery in three decades has been significant: from a small family enterprise, the Poilâne bakery has transformed into a prestigious bread company, with a global reputation amongst bread lovers. Today, the Poilâne bakery is led by Appolonia, the eldest daughter of Lionel and Irena, who took over the company at the age of 19 when she lost both her parents.

One of the best breads in the world

The Poilâne bakery offers delicious traditionally baked leavened bread, one of the best in the world. The Poilâne breads are handmade and cooked in wood fired ovens, which give them a fantastic taste. Sourced from the best suppliers, the ingredients used to prepare the bread are very simple: water, flour, salt from Guérande and levain, a raising agent.

The Poilâne bread is ideal to prepare fancy sandwiches or' tartines', or to have for breakfast with just a bit of salted butter. Many Parisian bistrots offer Poilâne bread in their menu. You can also taste the delicious bread at one of Poilâne's Cuisine de Bar in Paris (8 rue du Cherche-Midi; 38 rue Debelleyme) or London (39 Cadogan Gardens). Try the Mediterranean tartine with marinated artichokes, sun dried tomatoes and tapenade (a type of olive spread from Provence) or the tartine Terrine de Grand Mère with traditional French pâté and gherkins.

    Howdy! I know this is kinda off topic however , I'd figured I'd ask.
    Would you be interested in exchanging links or maybe guest writing a blog article or vice-versa?
    My blog addresses a lot of the same topics as yours and
    I think we could greatly benefit from each other. If you're interested feel free to
    send me an e-mail. I look forward to hearing from you!

    Superb blog by the way!

    The disease usually starts as an inflammatory sore on the corners of the mouth.
    This helps focus your mental energy while at the same time relaxing the rest of your body.
    In layman's term, it is the technical term for the disease that
    manifests in having chapped lips, cuts in the corners of the mouth, and lesions that are infected in the oral area.
