Gingerbread (pain d'épice) is a specialty of Dijon, and connoisseurs agree that family-run Mulot & Petitjean, founded in 1796, bakes some of the tastiest examples of the spicy, honey-sweet treat. The original boutique in downtown Dijon—still with its 19th-century decor—sells everything from individually wrapped gingerbread bites to giant loaves. Near Dijon's Notre-Dame church, rival bakery La Rose de Vergy serves excellent coffee and tea along with gingerbread sweetened only with artisanal honey. But the most flavorful, wholesome, fluffy gingerbread of all—with a whopping 70 percent honey—isn't from Dijon. It's baked by organic honey-makers Dominique and Jean-Jacques Coppin and sold at their shop, Les Ruchers du Morvan, located on an isolated hillside in the Morvan regional park, near Château-Chinon. The Coppins' honeys, particularly the Fleurs Sauvages (guaranteed wildflower honey), are some of France's best.—David Downie
