Our favourite Hispanic TV programme these days is Boulangerie with Bruno Gillot and Olivier Hanocq, two fantastically incomprehensible Frenchmen who own a Buenos Aires bread-shop with an 'artesanal' wood-fire oven dating back to 1911 - L'Epi.

Last Sunday they showed us how to make a ham sandwich with a leisurely nine hours preparation time! (Pain Faluche and a home-cooked leg of ham.)

Here's a clip someone has uploaded to YouTube. They're speaking Spanish, though you'd hardly know it. (That they learned it in Argentina just adds to the fun.)

There would appear to be a whole gang of these Gallic exiles in BA...clearly a global mecca for people with silly accents. (see also...)
