Panier of Plenty

Our Daily Bread

The most important part of daily life here – the baguette. Whatever form
it takes (at the moment we choose to break off segments) it is the
essential element, along with the necessary selection of cheeses that
accompany it. A meal would not be complete without the traces of miettes
(breadcrumbs, except when cooking when they become ‘chapelure’) on
the table, as bread is never on a side plate (as my English-infused traditions
dictate). Often shrouded in a linen cloth in a panier, keeping it fresh,
the remains of the baguette lie in waiting for the next repas.
