Farinoman Fou Boulangerie

family travel Provence

Although it would be nice to believe that all French boulangeries are wonderful, simply because they are French, this is not the case. It’s more common to find flabby baguettes and boulders of whole grain bread than you would think. Farinoman Fou boulangerie in Aix-en-Provence is good at everything they attempt: baguettes, as well as more interesting pain du coin (crusty, brown bread), bread with dried fruit and nuts, olive breads and more. The owner/baker has written his own “panifeste” in case it wasn’t already clear through tasting that this is a passion project.

Must orders: Olives a foison or the fiorito negro – the baker’s takes on the Provencal fougasse. The choco-sourire – a smiling mini baguette stuffed with warm, dark chocolate. It’s got ten times the impact pain au chocolat.

Small Folk Travel

Small Folk Travel is a family travel site by mama and travel writer Taraneh Jerven. The Jerven family (two toddlers, one bun in the oven) travels incessantly. When researching our trips, we couldn't find the family travel coverage we were looking for. We did our own research. We wrote the family travel guides ourselves. Taraneh Jerven writes for international travel publishers including RoughGuides.com and DK Eyewitness Travel. We cover good stuff for discerning parents and their little ones. Often these overlap. If they don't, we take turns.
