Paris Bakery Tour Suggestions

December 4, 2011 - 6:49pm -- Boboshempy

Ok, so my wife and I are going to Paris and we want to eat our way through all the MUST SEE bakeries.  It is my first time there and, as we all know, bread is quite an obsession of mine.  Does anyone have any good current itineraries or suggestions of how to attack Paris?  It is quite overwhelming for me so I really appreciate any knowledge anyone can lay on me!

Thank you so much my baking friends!

How to become an apprentice in Europe

November 3, 2011 - 4:10pm -- SweetBrioche

Hey all! I'm an apprentice at my neighborhood bakery. Next year I'm going to Europe for a wedding and I figured since I am there I should apprentice for a while and then go check out the culinary olympics in October (spectator, of course). The problem is I don't know where to start looking or if there is some way I can make a connection before I get there so I dont' start go there in the dark. Any thoughts as to persons (I figured in Italy, France and Germany), places and things so I don't go roaming Europe in the dark after learning a language I don't need? Thanks!
