Gifts from Poilâne
It’s true - this little loaf was made for me! This type of culinary art is known as pain décoré - a custom loaf of bread with words, leaves or decoration to denote a special occasion. With advance notice, Poilâne bakery in Paris can make one for you too!
When I was in Paris, I was given a tour of the Poilâne and while I was there, one of the bakers was crafting a phrase out of dough for a special loaf.
It said: “Alba...Je T’aime” (translation: Alba...I love you”)
*Sigh* Who wouldn’t love to receive that? Alba is one lucky girl.
