French White Bakers

• 19 November 2009

















A little while back I posted about these small, individual gratin dishes my MIL sent me from France. Luckily there was only one casualty and the rest I enjoy using for all sorts of fun things like cobblers, gratins, etc. Since I love them so, I am constantly on the lookout for something similar in the US so I can pass along the info to you. So far I haven't found anything exactly like them, but I am close...so close. What do you think about these classic, porcelain bakers also from France?

I adore these and can think of a million uses for them. Having them would eliminate the need for a variety of odd shaped and sized baking dishes that are so hard to store in a kitchen with limited cupboard space! One shelf all stacked together! Oh to dream!

I really need those! How I constantly wish for all the lovely European products that would so enrich our daily lives. How could one not adore making a sweet cobbler in one of those?

Love, love, love them. I have been on the lookout for baking dishes like these that look pretty enough to go straight from the oven to the dining table. This set would be perfect. If you do find something similar in the US, I'd love to hear about it!

I saw some pretty similar ones at william sonoma last week. I could only find this link, but I swear I saw all white ones at the store:

Next time you're in Paris be sure to stop by a particular store that sells porcelain, namely Apilco, that is slightly flawed (has an itty bitty bubble, or small black fleck on the bottom) that could not be sold at retail price. Anyway, before we left Paris, we bought a 12 piece set of plates and salad plates for about $1-2 a piece. Worth every cent and weight in carry on baggage compared to going to pay $10 a plate at Williams-Sonoma who sell the exact same thing. I believe the store was in the teens of the arrondisments...they sell other china and flatware, etc. Cool store.

It was killing me that I couldn't remember where this store was. So I looked in storage in my notes (while we lived there for a year). I don't know the name of the store but it's located on 45 rue de General Leclerc in the 14th. Metro Alesia. Hope it's still there. They also sell Limoge. One of the best kept secrets in Paris, imo.

Bless you Hannah. I'm totally checking out that store the next time I'm in Paris. Thanks!
