As some of you already know, my daughter is on a week holiday in Paris with her friends, with whom she's spent many years together at her old school (some of them since they're only seven) ; 8 girls, the last time together before setting off to new unis from this autumn. Before she departed, I gave her a very important mission of buying me a few bags of authentic, real French bread flour, namely T55 and T65, for me, naturally.
She rang me last night to report her mission was accomplished (3 bags each of T 55 & 65..... Yay!) and asked if I wanted any bread, too. I told her not to bother, because, even in Paris, it's not easy to buy really good bread, unless you know where to get it or you're very lucky. (Unlike in London, you don't have to be 'extremely' lucky. Just 'very' lucky will still do in Paris. )
But just now, she rang me again and asked if I'd ever heard of 'Eric Kayser.' With my heart racing, I immediately said, 'YES! That's one of the BEST!' Then she said, 'Well, it's not flour, you know, but we just bought a few bread there for lunch. I've already eaten the one with olives in, and it was quite good, so I bought another one for you, a plain one. Thought you might prefer like that. Is Pain Rustique alright?'
.......Pain Rustique? Pain Rustique of Eric Kayse r ?! Of course it's alright!! It's MORE than alright!!!! It's perrrrrrrfect!!!!!
I'm soooooo proud of my daughter!! More proud than when she got the offers from all the unis she applied! :p
So, my daughter is bringing me back THE LE Pain Rustique by M.Eric Kayser (though more than likely made by his staff, not him-holy-self) tomorrow!!!! If any of those ***** rioters distract any of London transportation network to hinder my bread's daughter's safe return home, I'll ****them! I mean it!
