Day One Eighty Six - Les Michettes

Don't you wish you could bottle the scent of freshly baked bread wafting out of French bakeries and boulangeries? Strikes a specific cord of fantastic comfort and homey goodness.

Moving back to our boulangeries topic though, the French make a very special baked bread item called a michette - it is a four to five bite bread baked with a variety of "centers" -- everything from ratatouille to to emmental to mushrooms to olives to chevre to zucchini to spinach to Roquefort to ham to tuna and more.

The zucchini or courgette one just strikes a cord for me - the mixture of chevre, emmental, herbs and fresh zucchini baked all into this small morsel of yummy goodness, you just can't go wrong! Each manages to impart an intense infusion of the flavor it promises - freshly baked and superduper delectable!!!

If you are ever in Antibes, it is worth a visit to L'Epi D'or for their fantastic michette. They're definitely the best in town! Keep in mind the bakery is closed Thursdays & Fridays. If you want to get michette you have to go between 11am and 1pm, otherwise they sell out. A true treat!!!!

Check back tomorrow for a positively Southern French Marriage Mondays!
