Living breads, natural sourdough starters, country wheats from the Ile-de-France region, untreated salt and filtered water from artesian wells: that’s the credo of Maxime Bussy, one of the great peasant bread advocates, who are hard to come by in the capital. In his shop, which only has enough room for one or two customers at a time, there’s an incessant flow of bread addicts coming to grab a classic Bricheton loaf made with white flour, or the seeded version, the Khorasan wheat loaf, the spellbinding rye bread, the Barbu du Roussillon bread (€9-14/kg)… or even the impressive kouglof (€25/kg).
The hidden gem: The sourdough brioche (€20/kg).
