Djibril Bodian of Le Grenier à Pain Abbesses
With thanks to Farine, who is always up on the latest in the world of bread.
Edit: One of the judges posted a blog on the competition. Gosselin took fifth. Here's the link to her comments
Thanks for that, Lindy!
I just read about this in the Independent as well. I stayed in this neighborhood last time I visited Paris, so I'm wondering if I've tasted Bodian's traditional baguette already... It's all hazy, and there were so many great ones...
I hadn't seen that interview with Kaplan before...Hilarious!
I'll have to check out the video when I get home tonight - but can you imagine tasting 150 baguettes in four hours? Burp.
I think the judges deserve an award.
