Sélestat, in the Bas-Rhin, is home to the oldest bakery in France: the Fournil by Marcel Kientz. The latter was created in 1752. In this family, we have been a baker from father to son for ten generations. Every morning, in front of the shop, the son, Marcel, fry filled donuts. An Alsatian tradition. Here, as far as we can remember, there has always been the famous bakery. “It’s a passion, I have always wanted to do only that, one thing leading to another, we are taking over“Says the 40-year-old.
Every day, Marcel cleans crunchy and tender bread, which resembles that of his ancestors. A loaf made from natural flour has thus undergone a long fermentation. “This is the kind of bread my grandfather made“, he specifies. At the Fournil, customers also come to pick up pastries, pastries and pretzels.”We are always well served, we feel good“, considers a woman. In addition, for two years, the Kientz family has revolutionized its working methods. The father, also named Marcel, started to make flour.
