La Fleur de Lyon. Guy Birenbaum, Chef and Owner of La Fleur de Lyon creates the most luscious brioche! The crusts are perfect, and hearing the description of the efforts he puts into the fillings, well you know you have SLOW FOOD here!

Easy directions (and quick for the end user!) -- pop these in the oven for 15 mintues, add a salad and a glass of wine and you have a great light meal!

I find Guy at the San Rafael Farmer's Market on Thursdays, but I know he also can be found at other Farmer's Markets, and some fine food stores such as Scotty's Market in Terra Linda.

Earlier this month, I brought my nephew Colin (9 years old) to the Farmer's Market since he has aspirations to be a chef. Given this introduction to Guy at the market, Guy told Colin of the efforts it takes to be a good chef and told him to always find passion and love in life! Good advice for anyone, and you can taste Guy's passion in every bite of his brioche.
