Wagga to have French flavour on Bastille Day

If the sight of an array of fresh, crusty baguettes isn’t French enough, how about some macarons in the blue, white and red colours of France’s Tricolour?

Bernard Hoff, owner of the Artisan Baker in Wagga, is celebrating France’s Bastille Day on Friday by doing what he does best – creating an array of the tastiest French-style breads and pastries.

Mr Hoff, who moved to Wagga 12 years ago after learning and perfecting his baking skills in homeland of France and later in London, plans to celebrate Bastille Day with a meal of crepes and French onion soup.

Reflecting on Bastille Day, Mr Hoff said he was happy to be celebrating the heritage and history of his birth country while spending time with his family in adopted home of Wagga.

“This is a good place to be,” he said.
