For the first time in six years, a new artisanal bread will grace our coveted bread collection. In honor of the annual Cherry Blossom Festival, master baker Cody Brandon has created a Choco Pain aux Cerises, a crunchy Pain de Seigle chock full of Early Richmond Cherries, Valrhona chocolate chips and cocoa nibs.

And because a beautiful French bread is best enjoyed surrounded by the intoxicating pink blossoms, Le Diplomate is offering a Cherry Blossom Picnic Basket to enjoy al fresco. Filled with a loaf of the Choco Pain aux Cerises (yielding about eight slices), a homemade cherry moustarda, and a variety of French cheeses including a French ash-covered Valençay goat cheese, a brie de nangis with double creme, and a blue d’avergne cow’s milk cheese. Samples will be available to guests to try before committing to purchasing.
