Heads Up--Pain Poilane at Gourmet Corner San Mateo

I dropped by Gourmet Corner late this afternoon, and the owners were busy unloading their latest shipment of goodies from France. In addition to some spanking fresh chevres, Langres, Fougerus, beurre de baratte, etc., there were maybe a dozen loaves of Pain Poilane. I couldn't resist walking away with a loaf, which, at $14, was not a cheap treat, but with a slab of French butter as well a crock of that superb Clover Farmstead butter on the side, any chowhound should be happy!

Mrs. de Vernou said that they are testing the waters to see if there's a market for the bread, though she suspects that the few loaves they have will go quite quickly.
