There was a chill in the air when I headed to Fordland to visit Schofield + Gray. I had learned earlier in the year that the brick and mortar Grayson Home that was located on Fremont Street in Springfield, had closed and moved to the Shofield + Gray property. I have always been a fan of the Grayson Home shop, purchasing small gifts for friends, rustic pillows for my porch and one-of-a-kind art. So, I grabbed my boots and a friend and hit the road, ready to find my next treasure to bring home.
The drive was a breeze, and before we knew it we were coming up on Main Street in Fordland. We decided to stop into La Galette Berrichonne to grab a cup of coffee before our adventure. This little French cafe and bakery was an absolute delight, serving authentic French pastries and cuisine by legendary French chef–turned–Fordland resident Roland Parny. Coffee turned into diving into a cream puff as big as my head, the most decadent apple tart I’ve ever had, pain au chocolate and fruit compote crepes.
