Discovering a wonderful French bakery

Not too long ago, I discovered a wonderful French bakery in Fairfield, Connecticut called Isabelle et Vincent www.isabelleetvincent.com that really deserves a mention.  The proprietors, Isabelle and Vincent Koenig, moved to the United States with their two children in 2007.  Their home is Strasbourg, France, where they had previously operated a very popular patisserie.  Their dream was to recreate that business here in America and from looks of things, they have certainly succeeded. 

Vincent is a seventh-generation pastry chef and master chocolatier and works tirelessly creating his scrumptious breads, pastries, cakes, chocolates, and even ice cream.  His work and baking areas are open spaces where customers can watch as he and his assistants work their magic, while Isabelle greets the clientele with her warm and friendly spirit. There are comfortable seating areas to enjoy a cup of coffee or tea while nibbling one of their pastries, all the while, breathing in the warm and intoxicating aromas of continuous baking throughout the day.  And depending on the day, Isabelle et Vincent produce 300 to 800 baguettes, making many people very happy.
