Back in the 1970' lived in an apartment in Paris above a bakery. Every morning around 5am the smell of the baguettes would wake me up. I would go down and lock on the back door to get one and then back to bed.

@zichi Don't you soooo wish you once again lived in that apartment above that bakery in Paris right now?

Thanks for sharing that.

We're lucky to live isolated in the country. The weather since the lockdown has been beautiful, like some sort of guilty holiday. I can't imagine how awful it must be to be stuck in any of France's HLM's right now or any other confined living space in urban zones across the globe.

Ah! Romance. But no, because I will tell you a secret, if you promise not to tell anyone. Everyday, I bake my own baguettes and many other types of breads, Greek, Italian. Got myself a small oven which I use for the baking. Takes about 30 minutes work plus baking time also about 30 minutes. There are many ways including rice cookers, slow cookers, Dutch Oven (cast iron pot).
