I was up in Montmartre the other day with a friend who lives there and she took me to a relatively new boulangerie called Chez Gomtran at 22, rue Caulaincourt. It was started by a young man who has a cooking show in France and is known for his breads. The shop has a really nice ambiance and the bread, sandwiches, and desserts look fabulous.
This man in the motorcycle helmet was funny. I was taking a photo of the breads reflected in a mirror and his came up beside me and pretended to be taking a big bite. He was funny and sort of forward, not your usual restrained Frenchman.
A short video I did to show you what is for sale. My friend joins in at the end talking about the black buns.
