Hi Jeremy, good to hear from you.

I am on a quick trip to Melbourne/Victoria, catching up with a few bread people. At the moment I am tearing into an olive bread from a new Melbourne bakery, and feeling very guilty because I wanted to take photos of the cross-section before messing it up. But there is not a suitable knife around and I just want to eat. It has such a lovely structure too, full of plump olives.

Good to see you have a new interview. I'm currently on wireless and having difficulty loading the mp3 file, but will listen later on a hard connection. Actually....the file has loaded now. I will have a listen and get back to you later.

BTW. My PM box is full but I will clear it out when I return from this trip.

Very nice interview Jeremy. Perhaps you are a little hard on yourself in the closing chat? Chefs can be great bakers! Actually 'fennel raisin' sounds like a chef-conceived recipe. Noel is honest about the compromises of going big. I was at a bakery today where the baker was [i]very carefully[/i] making 100 loaves or so a bake. And then last week I was at an off-shoot of a once small bakery. Now it uses 20 tonne of flour a week and the bakers were running around in a focused frenzy. Such a contrast.

Hmm, Jeremy, you've picked the best time for visiting Paris, all empty, all Parisians stayin at côte d'aZur , and so it may happen, that one by one some boulangeries are closed just the same to me, when I visited Paris first time.
Don't worry, relaxing in the Tuileries at heat of the day is phantastic, watching people from allover the world at Sacré-C?ur in the late evening laughing, playing music or making nonsens or whatever, it's a great feeling of freedom.
You wanna catch your velo next time? As long as I live I havn't baked it.

..and I never got such wonderful croissants and pain au chocolade as I bought in Paris, perhaps in Bretagne, but Paris..I love this city.

Bianchi fan,
Ditto on everything you said, I would love to take my Fuji team bike with me or even my ancient Gios torino to go around Paris or well anywhere in europe! When I was in the army in Stutgart I used to ride down to my fathers home in Allgau, nice ride!
Uh Oh Maedi we now need a bikers page for the baker/riders!

Good to have you back.

Your pix are a sheer torture, Jeremy. I don't think I can bear the description of the tastings.
