While strolling the streets of Paris, Stéphane and I spied these petits pains prénom (first name rolls) at Poilâne on Boulevard de Grenelle. Unable to resist the temptation of sharing one of their warm apple pies on a chilly evening, we were lured into this Parisian bakery that's famous for its sourdough bread and "Punitions" ("Punishment") cookies. Why are they called "Punitions". This very interesting clip from the CBS television program "Sunday Morning" reveals the answer.
The next time you're in Poilâne, be sure to take a "Punitions" when you pay for your bread. The cashier offers one to all of their customers.
Have a wonderful Sunday!
