Take a baguette and slice thinly. Arrange slices on a baking sheet in a single layer and drizzle with olive oil. Sprinkle with coarse sea salt and herbs de Provence. Preheat the oven to 350°F. Set in the oven for about 10 minutes, turning once or twice, until lightly toasted on all sides. Spread the cubes on a tray to cool before using or freezing.
Take 20 slices of white country-style loaf bead and cut into 1/2″ squares. Put in a deep pan over medium heat and then add 2 c. oil. Fry in batches until golden brown and lift to paper towel lined plates until dry. A wok works best in which to fry.
