The French have been defending their great language against foreign incursions for many years, objecting to the increasing use of English words such as le weekend, le email or le bestseller. But le pique-nique is one of the many words to have made the reverse journey from France to the UK, where it became anglicised and went on to conquer the world.
A SIMPLE BUT SUPERB DISH FROM ‘THE WORLD CAPITAL OF GASTRONOMY’ – THE SALADE LYONNAISE
We are marking the UK’s National Coffee Week with the launch of a new range of more indulgent varieties of coffee and hot chocolate, and giving you the choice to use your favourite re-usable cup and save 10p.
Join in our Easter Egg Hunt to win a free PAUL Hot Chocolate to enjoy in our shops or to take away.
Between 12th December and 15th January, for every 400g (or larger) loaf that you bought at PAUL, we donated 50p to The Felix Project, as a result of which we have raised £15,000. The charity is going to use the money to buy a new van, enabling them to keep up the good work of distributing London’s surplus fresh food to feed the homeless, those living in poverty and families who are struggling to get by. It was wonderful to see how many of you embraced our Christmas campaign, helping us to raise such a significant sum. Merci.
SINGLE OR DOUBLE ‘DEPRESSO’ FOR JUST £1.00
In classical Rome, the word ‘focus’ meant hearth or fireplace or, figuratively, home and family. It is, of course, the origin of the modern word ‘focus’, meaning the centre of interest and activity, which seems entirely appropriate. And ‘Panis focacius’, the precursor of fougasse, was bread baked in the hearth.
Never mind silver sixpences in the Christmas pudding, try this rather different French tradition featuring ceramic charms, gold crowns, and some light-hearted fun for all the family. Not to mention the chance to eat the Galette des Rois, a perfectly splendid traditional cake made with all butter puff pastry filled with frangipane cream.
If you’re looking for a Christmassy activity to do with the kids that doesn’t involve board games, festive films, elf on the shelf and other distractions from the fact that it’s not Christmas Day yet, try baking this absolutely delectable Chocolate Yule Log together. It’s surprisingly simple, satisfyingly squidgy and decorating it is almost as much fun as decorating the tree itself. What’s more, it’s a cake that will be thoroughly enjoyed by adults and children alike.
It really is that simple. Between 12th December and 15th January, for every loaf (400g or larger) that you buy in PAUL shops or online at paul-uk.com, we are donating 50p to The Felix Project to help put food on the table of those who really need it.
