The Muffin Man in Paris

John Whiting | Mar 7, 200202:21 AM

The eminent American food writer John Thorne is researching English muffins. There's an American expat in France who has gone back to historic techniques and makes what are perhaps the best English muffins in the world. He has a truck with a cutaway side which he takes to markets where he practices his trade as a form of genuinely creative street theatre.

Every Sunday morning he's at the wonderful Raspail Organic Market in Montparnasse. Anyone who's in Paris at a weekend shouldn't miss it. And while you're there -- could you get the Muffin Man's name and email address? (If he has one; he doesn't have a web site, nor does he show up in a Google search except for a passing reference in the Ballymaloe site.) Otherwise a mailing address and/or phone number would suffice. John would be extremely grateful.
