Tartines are thin crust, open-faced sandwiches made with fresh, simple ingredients. Nothing like those masses of glob between two huge buns we devour here! Nope – the French do everything, tres chic et vraiment délicieux”! (very stylish and truly delicious!) Look at how easy to make>>
I make them at home and we love them! In the video Ina talks about a bread bakery in Paris called, Poilâne, where she buys French sourdough bread to make her own Tartines. Well, you can’t imagine my excitement when I discovered, Tartinery (!!) a NYC French bistro in Nolita, with a complete Tartine concept. And take a guess, where do you think they import their bread from?? Yes! The well-renowed Poilane country bread from St Germain-des-Pres in Paris. It seems to me life always comes full circle. Go to Tartinery if your’re in the neighborhood – it’s an adorable and fun place. And I promise you will fall in love with French Tartines!
Fodor’s Travel asked Ina, “What do you love about Paris”, her response:
“Everyday things in Paris are wonderful. It’s walking down a tree-lined street; going to the parks, the street markets, and the places to buy bread; sitting out at a café; going to the museums; or just taking a walk along the Seine. It’s just an incredible city.”
My response? What’s there not to love?
