A guesthouse featuring local cuisine
La Pain et la Rose is tucked away on a quiet, residential street, nestled between single-family homes. Push the front gate, and you will be delighted to discover a gorgeous home dating to the nineteenth century, surrounded by a picturesque garden planted with white roses. Welcome to Le Pain et la Rose, the passion project of Christophe and Marianne. Christophe, a sixty-something son of farmers, waited until retirement to realize his life-long dream of opening his own restaurant. “I saw it as an opportunity to work together with my wife to combine our respective passions: cooking and the mosaic arts.” The intimate dining room, decorated with Marianne’s artwork, serves restaurant-quality cuisine spotlighting regional products from southwestern France. An ardent environmentalist and an advocate for short supply chains, Christophe sources his ingredients from local producers who have been carefully selected for their sustainable farming practices. Every Sunday morning, he can be found stalking the stalls of the Marché Saint-Aubin in Toulouse. With such a short supply chain, Christophe tries to make the most of what he buys to avoid food waste as much as possible, and the chickens in the kitchen gardengladly welcome any leftovers.
