^ You should be able to get hold of spelt - most health food / wholefood shops have flour and some do whole grains too - I think Booths sells pearl spelt too (if there's one near you) - buckwheat flour's pretty easy to get hold of too for home made crêpes.

Re: I have a problem..

It is difficult living in France. The food is far better as is the service. Never found a baguette in the UK to equal France (oh, and they're called "pain" which literally translates as bread or "demi-pain" for a short one. Baguette in France is a very thin thing... closest approximation is a very skinny French stick about the girth of a broom handle.

If people would like some biscuits bringing back, that is possible but to the Midlands.


Enjoying a good !#

Re: I have a problem..

^My local Morrisons is having some nice baguettes, bien longues, pas trop cuites, as I like them.
I buy them by 4, slice them and freeze them for the week.

Re: I have a problem..

@oupsemma - I guess you won't find them in this part of the world. We don't really have large organic shops either - usually fairly small wholefood shops (the one in Kendal used to be so small you could barely turn round in there). It's funny though, when I've been in France I've found it hard to find even small wholefood / health food shops - it was hard to get hold of brown rice or wholemeal bread - I suppose it just depends what part of the country you're in (pot luck again!). Having said that, I haven't been to France for about 7 years (I used to visit every summer) - things might be different now.
I'm quite partial to a good mince pie too - I remember hearing something on the radio years ago about a town in France where they make mince pies to an old British recipe with meat & lemon peel, apparently someone had taken the recipe over there a few hundred years ago (?) and they've carried on making them in the same way. Eccles cakes are pretty good too smile

Re: I have a problem..

I find mince pies and eccles cakes a little bit heavy and sweet.

Good lord my birds are in full tweet to "Fight for your right to parrrrtaaaayyy"

Re: I have a problem..

You might try writing to Bjorg to get a list of retailers offering the product in London.
