Pain de Taka

I love to visit this local bakery near my parents-in-law, "Pain de Taka", when we visit Okayama. French-style bakeries are not something you would naturally think of as typically Japanese but they certainly are... authentic French baking with a Japanese twist, such as my favourite, mentaiko furansu (baguette baked with spicy cod roe and butter)...

I apologise in advance if I'm tardy with commenting on your blogs or returning comments during the week... I will get to you though!

@Gérard: The Japanese do very well at copying French boulangerie... if you ever get a chance to try mentaiko furansu I recommend it!

Delightful looking pastries. Some of the bakeries I visited in Hiroshima had less elegant fare. They often had hotdogs baked in a bun, etc.

@Steve Rice: I know that kind of Japanese bakery too... generally very soft and sweet bread...
