Description

In Cavaillon, there are seventeen bakers listed in the Pages Jaunes, but we had been told that one establishment was ahead of all the rest in terms of choice and excellence, a vertiable palais de pain. At Chez Auzet, so they said, the baking and eating of breads and pastries had been elevated to the status of a minor religion.'This was written in 1988 in one of Peter Mayle's notebooks as he researched A Year in Provence. And ever since his first visit, the Boulangerie Auzet has remained one of his favourite places in the world. Many more people came to visit the bakery after A Year in Provence was published, all wanting more than just bread. They wanted ingredients, recipes, tips - anything that might help them recreate Boulangerie Auzet in their own kitchens. Confessions of a French Baker will do just that. It will decribe how to make bread and pastries, the secret of handling dough correctly, the history of the shop, some anecdotes, hints and tips, in short, a way of bringing Boulangerie Auzet into your own home.
