thoughts on food, culture, and community


“Pain de campagne” (pronouned “PAHN deh com-PAHN-yuh”) is a type of traditional French bread that is made with natural yeast, baked into large, round loaves, and sold in boulengeries across France.  The name translates literally to “country bread.”

As bread is a fundamental food element for many cultures across centuries, this blog is dedicated to stories of travel and cuisine and the people and societies surrounding them.
