gosselinDuring my visit to Paris last year, I started to believe I could reach a limit on bread consumption.  My clothes were starting to feel a little snug and I thought I should ease up a little.  But then I pondered, “I am not in Paris every day so I must persist.  Eat, sample, trial whatever I need.  Diet later”.

Throughout my all consuming Boulangerie et Pâtisserie week, and despite the amount of bread I had sampled, I was looking forward to the offerings at Gosselin.

At Gosselin, it is all about the baguette.  Plain and simple.  Gosselin has been awarded the ‘Best Baguette in Paris’ so this was not to be missed.

I took a trip to the store on Boulevard Saint-Germain around lunch time.  There were quite a number of tourists and locals snapping up a range of sandwiches served on their famous bread.  Not one to want to miss out, I joined them and opted for the same.

It was delicious.  A far cry from the type of sandwich I would pick up locally in my lunch break.  The French really do know how to eat.

Definitely take a trip by.
