Travel Bite: Boulangerie, Rue Cler, Paris

Rue Cler is a quaint pedestrian street in Paris' upscale 7th Arrondissemont close to where I was staying near the Ecole Militaire and Eiffel Tower. With its boulangerie, fromagerie, charcuterie, poissonnerie and chocolat confiserie, there was no shortage of charming places ending in rie. This boulangerie had an outdoor setup, replete with French cleavage. Who was the bigger tart?

It is said that a French baker cannot be good at both bread and pastry and must therefore choose between the two.

And yet I would trust a single Frenchman to knead my dough and fill my tart any day (or night). Then again, two Frenchmen might be better.


  1. Hi Adair! Thanks for visiting my blog :) I loved your post about Paris - I have been wanting to go there for years and for some reason I've traveled to a million other places but never France!

    I agree with what you wrote about being good at baking or pastry but not both. I'm not so good with the bread, but pastry is my friend :) Happy New Year :)

  2. Very good blog! Do you have any helpful hints for aspiring writers?

    I'm planning to start my own blog soon but I'm a little lost on everything.

    Would you recommend starting with a free platform like Wordpress or go for a
    paid option? There are so many options out there that I'm completely confused .. Any suggestions? Thank you!
