The crusty French bread
The crusty French bread
Thanks to a close collaboration with specialist bakers in France,
The French Baguette is a world famous bread with a personality
and structure all of its own: a soft crumb wrapped in a crispy crust.
In the past, bread loaves were baked in the village communal oven
until, in 1920, a law was passed preventing bakers from working
before 4 am. This made it impossible to bake the traditional loaf in
time for breakfast. A longer, thinner Baguette solved the problem
because it could be prepared and baked much more rapidly.
Bakers in Paris started competing to offer the freshest bread
possible, and to meet demand they baked 3 times a day and made
the loaves longer in order to get more crust and less crumbs.
The Baguette was born and would start its conquest of the world.
Consumption habits
When: The Baguette is the most popular bread in France, and is
still served at virtually every meal.
How: At breakfast, it is eaten with butter and jam and as a snack,
children add chocolate. It’s an essential part of both lunch and
dinner, going particularly well with rich and varied cheese
platters. For a quick meal or a picnic, it’s the perfect bread to
make sandwiches - often and typically ham with butter is the
most popular.
