Pain au chocolat at the Fete du Pain

Now we're out of the fancy competition section, and into the sizeable bakery that is supplying the stall outside (as well as some yummy free samples). These bakers are quickly and expertly turning out all the popular pastries that are eaten daily here. This baker has just turned out a whole batch of mini pain au chocolat, a perfect bite with a coffee. They'll go on the tray next, then get baked. They sell for about 50c. See that box on the bench? That's a box of "baking sticks", rods of dark chocolate just the right size for encasing in buttery pastry. Need a box of those, I reckon.
