I’d pic(nic) you any day. Fall is here, so why not host a picnic? Picnics are a perfect way to catch up with family and friends. We partnered with local Montclair bakery, Le French Dad, to create a picnic with delicious French bites. We are excited to share our fall picnic with Le French Dad Bakery with you.
Who is Le French Dad?
Le French Dad is a boutique artisanal bakery in Montclair, NJ. Arben is the dad behind Le French Dad. He started as an apprentice in a friend’s bakery in France in 2015 and fell in love with the craft. He opened his own boulangerie on Church Street in 2018. Today Le French Dad offers naturally leavened, French rustic bread, éclairs, croque monsieur, cinnamon rolls, croissants and macarons.
How to Host a Stylish Picnic?
For a stylish picnic, we recommend a picnic blanket, a picnic basket, fall flowers, cheeseboard, fresh fruit as well as pastries and sandwiches from Le French Dad. The freshly baked baguette was unbelievable. The bread was light, airy and a golden color. The crust was crispy. It was literally the best bread we’ve ever eaten. The pastries were soft, flakey and buttery. You better baguette about it.
Sweet dreams are made of cheese. A good baguette needs a variety cheeses accompaniments. For the picnic cheeseboard, we recommend three types of cheeses. We served brie, gruyere and goat cheese with crackers, red grapes, pomegranates, almonds and pecans.
Where to Get the Best Macarons?
Hey macaron-a! We love French macarons. Archana even tried to make them once for Mother’s Day. We discovered Le French Dad when we wanted macarons for our Spring Tea Party. Make sure to get a few Salted Caramel, which is our favorite. If you only want one treat from Le French Dad, we recommend the macarons.
French food is brie-ond belief! This fall, set up your own picnic in the park, beach or even your own backyard with Le French Dad.
I’m not opposed to a fancy meal, but I’ll take a picnic any day… food and nature? Sign me up.Ryan Paevey
