Madame Poupon

 

 

 

Madame Poupon on Nostrand Avenue in Bedstuy, Brooklyn, is an incredible nook bursting at the seams with spirit, love, culture, community, and the most heavenly crepes New York has seen. This zine is a journal documenting the happenings at the creperie. They are a new business and the owner and cook, Chef Jean Christopher, named it after the woman who taught him to make crepes when he was a seventeen year old boy in his hometown of Brittany / Bretaigne. This book is a collection of signage, interviews and eavesdropping that ended up teaching me so much about Brittany, and my own neighborhood.
