Where can you get these in Seattle? Any good bakery that has them?

    Campagne and the Cafe sometimes have them on the menu. They aren't that tough to make btw. I don't know if any bakeries have them though. Sorry.

      The last time we dined at Campagne, two little gougeres were served on a small plate as a complimentary amuse bouche, but they were served cold - mon dieu! They are infinitely better served hot, and as Mighty Mac said, they are pretty easy to make. There are tons of recipes for them on the net, the ingredients are simply a variation on the theme of butter, cheese, eggs and flour. Here's a link to get you started (this one calls for piping the batter, but you can just plop a spoonful gently if you don't have a piping tube:

            I can tell you how to make them if you get desperate. Plus all the iterations from the batter. Yum.

              I think the only place I have ever seen these for sale in a bakery is at Lenotre in Paris. Which seems kind of odd-I wonder why they aren't more available. Yes, they are easy to make, but so are lots of baked goods that people buy in bakeries.
