The white bread bakery Carre Pain de Mie opens in Paris on Tuesday.

Jiji Press PARIS (Jiji Press) — A bakery selling chewy white bread made of Japanese flour has opened in Paris.

“We hope people will get to know how tasty Japanese flour and bread are” in this gourmet city, Michio Hasegawa, president of the operator of the bakery, said at the shop’s unveiling ceremony on Tuesday.

The white bread sold at the bakery, Carre Pain de Mie, uses flour made in the town of Biei in Hokkaido.

The bakery will have a cafeteria, where customers can enjoy sandwiches.

In France, the most commonly eaten bread is a baguette, a long, thin loaf with a crisp crust.

Camille Royer, a milling plant worker who tasted the Japanese white bread at the ceremony, said that it was tasty in a totally different sense from baguettes and that it will likely be accepted by young people who do not stick to conventional ideas.Speech
