Boulangerie Pradier, Sablet

We are lucky to have two very good boulangeries - bakeries - in Sablet that are open year around, that is except for their congés annuels et jours de fermeture - annual vacations and days they are closed each week.

The two boulangeries conveniently close on different days so villagers are never without baguettes, croissants, pain au chocolat or the other breads and pastries that are baked fresh each day.

Boulangerie Pradier is located a short walk from our house in the direction of the boucherie. This boulangerie is closed on Wednesdays and Thursdays.

Boulangerie Pradier makes the most wonderful pain complet, a whole wheat type bread they shape like a large baguette. Unfortunately, they only bake this bread on Tuesdays and Fridays.

One Tuesday morning I walked into Boulangerie Pradier to get our daily bread and an apple tart Shirley had seen displayed the day before. Unfortunately, there was no apple tart in the display case.

When I asked Madame about the apple tart, she replied "je suis désolé mais non monsieur", I am sorry but no sir. She continued on to say, that she would be happy to bake one and it would be ready by noon.

As promised, the apple tart was ready when I walked into the boulangerie at noon. I can tell you that Madame's apple tart tastes even better than it looks.
