Fête du Pain (Bread festival) is back for its edition 2019 and for the 24th year in a row. In Paris, it will take place a little bit earlier than usual, from May 11 to 20, 2019 and will be set not in front of Notre Dame due to the recent events but a stone's throw, at the Place Louis Lépine, to offer us ten days of animations and discoveries for kids and gourmet grown-ups like us.
This event is the opportunity for pastry-cooks to teach grown-ups and little gourmet kids everything about bread making, pastries and other sweet treats. They will be glad to share with you their passion for their jobs.
All of them may not be called "baker" or "bakery". The craft will grab the opportunity Bread Festival is to assert their differences, promote breads made in accordance with professional standards and to mention that a good bread has its name: Pain de Tradition Française (French traditional bread). By the way, you can attend the National championship for best tradition baguette in France from Monday May 13 to Wednesday May 15, 2019.
This year, baking-students from Ottawa come to make us discover their Canadian specialties alongside Parisians bakers. Bobcat paws (pattes de lynx), lemon-poppy seed bread and maple and cranberries roll cake find their spot next to French traditional baguettes.
A 1,200 square-meter tent with several sharply defined areas (making, contest...), 6 recreated bakeries, 8 ovens, a hundred of male and female bakers, employees and working apprentices, over 3,000 French traditional baguettes made every day... There will be something for everyone!
