Cattlar 66500 – A baking Revolution?

No Comments

Sunday  is a day of rest in France – great! No shops open just maybe a little food festival, an organised walk or maybe  a specialist market to go to.  So last Sunday morning we took a run over to Cattlar, only about 5 minutes from Prades and 10 from Ria Sirach Apartments, for a market we saw advertised.  The market was small, very small, but the centerpiece was a stall run by the new local bakers – they were queued out. There was one guy doing repeated runs back to the bakery for more stock. On further enquiry we found out that three young bakers had taken over the local bakery and they certainly were a hit. They produce a wide range of baking including sourdough loaves. We purchased some of their produce  and distributed it to the renters – It is now a Sunday tradition that we supply the Sunday bread! Usually we get it from the wood oven in Villefranche de Conflent but something tells me that Cattlar will be getting a turn as well.
