Samba/Samba

March 21, 2017

SAMBA reunites THE INTOUCHABLES’ acclaimed directing duo, Olivier Nakache and Eric Toledano, with award-winning actor Omar Sy in a richly entertaining chronicle of an undocumented kitchen worker battling deportation from his adopted home in Paris.

When Samba (Sy) is suddenly ordered to leave France, he enlists the help of Alice (Charlotte Gainsbourg), an emotionally vulnerable immigration advocate with little experience but plenty of heart. As the immigrant aspiring chef and the burned-out corporate executive tentatively explore an unexpected bond, they inspire each other to reinvent themselves in this vibrant comedy full of tender humor and heartfelt optimism.

 

The Wave/Die Welle

March 22, 2017

When Rainer Wegner (Jürgen Vogel), a popular high school teacher, finds himself relegated to teaching autocracy, instead of anarchy, as part of the school’s project week, he is less than enthusiastic. So are his students, who greet the prospect of studying fascism yet again with apathetic grumbling: The Nazis sucked. We get it. Struck by the teenagers complacency and unwitting arrogance, Rainer devises an unorthodox experiment. But his hastily conceived lesson in social orders and the power of unity soon grows a life of its own.

War of the Buttons/La Guerre des butons

March 23, 2017

Director Christophe Barratier adapts author Louis Pergaud’s novel set in the French countryside during World War II, which follows the escalating feud between two groups of youths from rival villages who seek to collect each other’s buttons. The children of Longeverne have never liked their peers in the neighboring village of Velran, and as war rages throughout Europe, tensions among the youths spike. But rather than using bullets and guns to defeat their opponents, the children create an innovative new means of achieving victory: Upon capturing one of their adversaries, the conquerors claim the buttons right off of his clothes. At the end of the war, whichever team possesses the most buttons will be the undisputed winner. As a result, 13-year-old Longeverne leader Lebrac and his loyal young army wage a relentless campaign to claim every button from their enemies in Velran. Meanwhile, a pretty young Jewish girl named Violette arrives in Longeverne from the city. For Violette, hiding out with her enchanting aunt Simone is a matter of life or death. And the more time Violette spends in Longeverne, the closer she grows to Lebrac. Before long, it becomes apparent to Lebrac that there’s much more at stake in this battle than the buttons on his rivals’ jackets.

The Innocents/Les Innocentes

March 24, 2017

In 1945 Warsaw, a French Red Cross doctor (Lou de Laage) is called to a convent on an urgent matter. Once there, she not only helps a nun give birth, but discovers that several other women at the monastery are also pregnant. Soon, she is tasked with keeping the secret of what happened at the convent during World War II. Directed by Anne Fontaine, The Innocents made its world premiere at the 2016 Sundance Film Festival.

Pandor Bakery Launches Crepes at Belmont Shore

When one thinks of a traditional crepe, images of Paris are often brought to mind, with a myriad of delicious scents wafting through the winding alleyways.  And while this delicious custom originated in Brittany, northern France, versions of the crepe can be seen across the globe in many variations.  Many countries including Austria, Serbia, and Germany, all have their own version of this versatile “pancake”, some with feta cheese, jams, and most famously, a hazelnut spread called Nutella.  However, it is most famous for being one of the national dishes of France.

In terms of preparation, the crepe batter is both simplistic yet subtle.  Too runny and you’ll end up with a soppy mess.  Too thick and it will be burnt and dry.  After pouring the batter onto the skillet or grill, a T-shaped tool called a rozel is delicately used to spread the crepe batter over the lightly buttered surface.  The process requires both a light hand and plenty of training, so at Pandor Bakery we make sure that our crepe-making staff is thoroughly trained by our crepe Master, Kamel.  Once the crepe is fully cooked on the outside, the fun part begins.  

Crepes can be served as both sweet and savory options.  At Pandor Bakery, the Romeo and Julliette crepe, filled with banana, strawberries, whipped cream, and Nutella, is a huge fan-favorite for those with a sweet-tooth! However, for those seeking a more savory meal, the A la Dinde crepe (turkey, bacon, swiss, avocado, tomato, and onions) always seems to hit the spot.  Or if you’re feeling creative, try your hand at the “Build Your Own Crepe”!  

Long story short, crepes have been around for centuries and it’s easy to guess why.   By serving delicious crepes at the Newport Beach, Belmont Shores, and Anaheim locations, we are passionately fulfilling our mission to bring fresh, traditional, French fare to Orange County.  And if you haven’t yet experienced the crepe-magic, we would be proud to serve you your first! Bonne appétit à bientôt!

Stop by our Belmont Shore location on 2nd Street in Long Beach to experience the amazing flavors. We are offering our crepes at 50% off for Happy Hour Crepes at Belmont Shore only after 4 pm. Now is the best time to try. (limited time offer)

Gluten Free Deliciousness

Gluten Free Bakery Options

Of all the health trends, it seems one of the most popular is the gluten-free diet.  Many restaurants and cafes are offering such options due to the growing demand.  However, before you pass it off as a popular fad, let’s take a look at the facts behind it.  Scientifically speaking, gluten refers to the proteins found in wheat, barley, rye, etc.  This nutrient helps nourish the young plants and is also responsible for breads “doughy” texture.  For most people, consuming gluten has little effect.  Yet for some, even the smallest amount of gluten can be potentially life-threatening.  

Unfortunately, almost 18%  of America’s population (that’s a lot of people) is gluten sensitive, meaning their bodies automatically initiate an immune response to the digestion of gluten.  In extreme cases, a complete intolerance to gluten can be seen in those with Celiac disease, which means absolutely no wheat products.  For those who are not sensitive to gluten, you’d be surprised how many things contain it!  For many, finding a replacement can be both frustrating and

At Pandor Artisangluten free cranberry muffins Boulangerie and Cafe, we understand that different people have different health needs and we relish at the opportunity to cater to all! As a result, we proudly offer a myriad of gluten-free desserts such as our gluten-free lava cakes and chocolate mousse. In addition, gluten-free crepes can also be made to order by our very own French crepe master and come in both sweet and savory styles (try the Atlantique, served with a side of salad).  And if you are feeling something fresh, we’ve got a wide array of gourmet salads packed with fresh veggies and protein options.  It is of utmost importance to us that everyone walks out our doors with a smile on their face, whether or not they have specific dietary needs.  Bon appetit!
