The year 1789, marks an important turn in French history, with the beginning of the French revolution after the storming of the bastille, which led to the downfall of the monarchy and the rising of the French republic in 1792.

To honour their independence, France celebrates 14th July as its national day, or “Bastille Day” as it’s known in the UK.

To celebrate Bastille Day, why not enjoy a traditional French breakfast? France’s favourite family baker, Brioche Pasquier, offers a range of delicious products specially made for breakfast.

The Brioche Pasquier story started in 1936, with Gabriel Pasquier’s small family bakery situated in Les Cerqueux, West of France. His five sons took over the family business in 1974 and carried on baking brioche to supply to the whole of France. Today Brioche Pasquier’s products are famous for their high quality and unique flavour, and they can be found right here in the UK. For more information visit

You can taste for yourself as Ipswich24 has got a picnic hamper full of delicious Brioche Pasquier products as well as a selection of St. Dalfour preserves to give away to a lucky reader courtesy of Brioche Pasquier. Just answer the following question, and fill in your details below.
