The Sounds of Bread Podcast

This is the Lucy's Kitchen Notebook podcast in which my friend Cyrus helps me find a way to step outside the box into the world of sound. I proceed from there to the boulangerie to record the action. You should listen to it with headphones if you can.

Sounds come from Eglise St. Nizier, on the presqu'ile in Lyon, Aline serves us at Boulangerie Saint Vincent, 49, quai St. Vincent, also in the 1st arrondissement. Music: Camille, from a song in her album, Le Fil.

Labels: ,

Lucy, I have been poring over (and cooking from) your blog for months, but was too shy to comment until now. J'adore this morsel of sound from the boulangerie! I was transported there from the moment I heard the door bells tinkling. I hope we can expect more podcasts like this. A girl in freezing Chicago has to feed her daydreams somehow, after all. Merci mille fois de tous les ecritures et photos precedents et futures.

That was sooo much fun! It was like a little movie with no picture, so you had to use your imagination to fill in what you couldn't see. I loved it!

I can't wait to listen to it! (But actually, I will wait, because I'm at work :)

I love your blog, this is the first time I have commented, though, couldn't resist after hearing the sound of the bread. I know that sound. I went back to school and took a 7 month Boulanger course and spent my 6 week work term in a French bakery in Nova Scotia where the owner and all of the bread bakers were from France. It was fantastic, the sounds and the smells and flavours.
The best part was our fresh baguette at the end of each shift which was attacked immediately at home and the worst part was the hours, I have since gone back to gardening for a living.
Ahhh, that crackling sound....it took me back! Thank you!

Friends, you are so kind to come and comment about the first one like this. I think I still have a long way to go to get a handle on this. Wendy, thank you very much for your story. I am really happy that this helped you remember and think about that experience.

Isn't it called the musique du pain, or something like that? Lovely and evocative of some happy days of my life.

Loved that Lucy! I'm sitting here in southern California wishing I was there in that boulangerie. I have to drive at least a half hour to find any decent bread...

Lucy, that was amazing! Your sound blog has communicated the beauty of bread as well as your photos. May we please have smells next?
