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.
