Local Delights

• 29 July 2009



































The Husband and I recently discussed how this pretty li'l town of Beynac-et-Cazenac increasingly amazes us with all it offers. There are a couple of excellent restaurants, scenic views, and a boulangerie that makes the best bread in France...no kidding! The simplicity of the French countryside is also alluring and very refreshing--particularly so if your lives at home are extremely hectic. I love feeling like it's a-okay to take it easy.

Our favorite boulangerie/patisserie in the area is run by Lucco Raoul--a man who apparently knew at the young age of 13 that he wanted to be a patissier. He spent his youth traveling the world discovering new flavors, techniques and styles of pastry-making. And now all the locals {and tourists} reap the benefits!

We had good luck with the lighting department at BHV in Paris. We brought home 2 because they were so pretty and cheap. Not sure if you'll be in Paris tho.
