Re: Local Flavor: Pearl Brewery Farmers Market, San Antonio

I'm so tempted to buy the wonderful foods I see in street markets. But being a tourist with nowhere to store and cook I regret I must pass. Much of the fruit and veg I have never seen before and I'm eager to try. Which is true I suppose for most folks in England. If we don't recognise a sweet potato - then we don't buy it. I do miss the vanilla flavoured Apples ( Custard Apples ) I had in Australia.

I just wanted to make sure someone was looking, PHeymont! The strawberry was my favorite. Which one did you like best?

I'm not a big fan of macarons (sorry, world!) but among them my favorites are coffee and Fruits Rouges. I noticed recently that there is a caramel with sea salt one now available...will report on that in July.

OMG, is that a rhubarb clafouti?

It looks like rhubarb to me, too. I'd call it a tart but where do they call it a clafouti? I've never heard the word.

That does look like rhubarb, doesn't it? It was sitting right beside the ham and mushroom quiche. But rhubarb sounds appealing right now.....

Clafoutis (I lost an s in typing) is a French dessert that is essentially a tart with fruit (the most traditional is cherries) in a flan-like custard. Usually you bake part of the custard a bit, add the fruit and more custard. I always thought it was from Normandy, because I first encountered it there, and then in a Norman restaurant in Paris, but it turns out the food historians say it comes from Limousin, and the name is from the Occitan "clafotis" which means "filled." So what probably...

Very interesting. Eating them for decades and never heard the term. I love to learn something about which I believed I already knew it all! Yum.

My wife sometimes believes that my main photo subjects are bread, fruit and veg, and birds perched on statues, so it's nice to know someone else appreciates how beautiful bread is, and how easy it is to smell it and taste just by looking at a great picture like this!

Maltese bread is something special. I'd certainly use it as an excuse, if you need one PHeymont, to visit Malta. Wonderful photo, IslandMan.

I also love a fresh loaf of bread. When it's just right, it's easy to make a meal of just bread and butter. I have great sympathy for those who can't eat gluten. I'm not sure I'd find life worth living without fresh baked goods.

Walking the narrow streets of Valletta - past the small shops that sell freshly cooked food and cakes. The smell of Coffee from the Cafes and Restaurants. And the smell of new leather. Brings back all the memories of wonderful Malta.

Re: France: Baking up a fight over bread and hours

DrFumblefinger ·
I'm sorry, but this is just tooooooooo much regulation. The government should let bakers decide when they want to open or not. Free markets have a way of sorting this type of thing out beautifully.

Re: France: Baking up a fight over bread and hours

PHeymont ·
I'm not so sure I trust free markets to run things so well...and I've seen mice run themselves to death on a treadmill. But I do think that it should be possible for bakeries to be open 24/7/365 as long as workers' hours are reasonable and there are enough of them.

Re: France: Baking up a fight over bread and hours

GarryRF ·
In a free market, workers hours are never reasonable. If Pierre the Baker wont work a 14 hour day - then there are a million immigrants who will. Europeans you can work a maximum of 48 hours a week.

DrFumblefinger ·
PHeymont -- it's one thing for flights and traffic laws and such to be regulated where there is a greater common good. But the idea of a government regulating when bakers can make bread is absurd in concept and execution. It is this kind of nanny micromanagement that will ruin an economy. Surely the politicians can find better ways to spend their time.

Paul bakeries are my downfall and they seem to be everywhere. Millions of calories I don't need have been forced on me by this company, against my will of course. They clearly use hypnosis or some similar mechanism, from which one cannot escape. Fortunately, as far as I know, there's an ocean between me and the closest such tart pusher.

We really enjoyed Paul's as well. Everything was always perfectly fresh and perfect! An excellent budget travel tip for those looking for an inexpensive breakfast or lunch while in Europe. And everything in their counter does reach out to your psyche with an "Eat me" message!

Local Flavor: Pearl Brewery Farmers Market, San Antonio

Samantha and her husband had a great time at the Pearl Brewery Farmers Market. It's close to the Riverwalk and full of fresh merchandise from local vendors.

When I was a kid in the Bay Area, Capitola was a place we went from time to time for weekend outings. But that was long before Gayle's, which looks like a fine place to take my granddaughters and see what else has happened to the town since those olden days.
