Waitrose do these things called
Waitrose do these things called "pains circe". That’s not a French nickname for the M25, but instead a rather handsome and trendy looking loaf of bread that is circular in shape with a hole at its centre. I’ve never bought one before, prefering smaller roll-type things or the occasional baton. However, as I was seeking some bread to go with my salad and duck pâté with champagne and truffles (yes, it tastes as good as it sounds), I thought to myself:
My! That’s a rather handsome and trendy looking loaf! I’ll buy one!
Verdict: it’s huge! I put it into one of the bags they provide, and the handle broke. I’m eating it now, and I’m only a third of the way through, and I’m stuffed.
There you go. Today’s exciting bread story.
