What? Boulangerie: Patricia et Denis Royer for pastry!
Where? 3 rue August Chevalier (Tours, France)
The skinny: Like most boulangeries (bakeries) here, there’s a certain mastery of the most common pastries and breads. This boulangerie specializes in pains chèvre (a pastry laden w goat cheese), baguettes, and pains lardons (bacon bread? haha).
Super short post. I tried using a different route going home today and it turned out to be pretty productive. :D Coming to a roundabout I notice a bakery across the street.
To enter or not to enter?
Oh, why am I suddenly peering into a display of beautiful tarts and pastries? Odd. Haha Off to the side, some odd-looking bread sat on a tray.
It looked to lonely that I had to spare it and bring it home with me. :D
Turns out it was Pain Chèvre (1,50€). Too bad I didn’t get it fresh, because otherwise, the goat cheese would be soft and oozing off the sides... Mmm.
|Saturated with cheese....holy crap imagine this fresh!! GAH.|
The taste was great but at room temperature, it lacked the smokey, pungent aromas (& tastes) of the goat cheese. If I had access to an oven, this problem would’ve been solved easily. Oh well.
|(left) Doesn't it just look like a stick of cheese? Pretty much. haha (right) Oh look, bread!|
I normally don’t do this, but the hours are so wonky that this will definitely help avoid the disappointment that is a closed bakery.
Open: Tues-Sat 7h-13h / 15h-19h30. Sun 7h30-13h
Verdict? There are so many bakeries here! I’ll return here once I’ve tried more bakeries.
