The French ‘Chocolate Sausage’ Mystery
This day we headed to le vieux ville of Saint Brieuc with its ancient cobbled streets and elegant stores to make a few purchases and enjoy the Christmas store decorations and mini market. After having enough of the bitter cold we headed to the cramped, but cosy, Maison Diener for a light lunch. After lunch, asking each child to go choose their dessert from the brightly filled display cabinet, Thomas excitedly fidgeted and said he wanted that ‘chocolate sausage’ right there – the long one! What, he’d found a sausage roll after all in France? But non, it was a chocolate éclair!
Hoping you enjoyed another little snippet of our life in France and in case you missed the time we almost forgot it was Christmas have a read and a laugh along with us. Maybe you want to read the story of why we chose to live in the village we do – if so, read Location, Location, Location and until next time…
PS: If you’re in Saint Brieuc and on the look out for delicious cakes and delectable savoury dishes head to Maison Diener, 11 Rue Saint-François, 22000 Saint-Brieuc or if in Saint Malo visit the very popular Boulangerie Patisserie de la Cathédrale, 1 Rue du Pourpris, 35400 Saint-Malo, France or when in my home town Newcastle, Australia, the best French desserts are to be found at The French Patisserie, 17 Thornton Avenue, Mayfield West by French pastry chef Christian Breton.
