Each day, every breakfast table in France is scattered with a variety of breads, cheeses and cold cuts. But, out of all the varieties of bread, the one that the French arguably love the most is the baguette. With a crisp, yet yielding crust, the baguette is the perfect bread to layer cold cuts onto or spread a dollop of pate over.
The “baguette de tradition francaise”, or the baguette made in the French traditional style is made from wheat flour, yeast and salt. Baguettes made in a non-traditional style may use rice flour and add milk, butter and sugar to the dough mix. If, however, you’re insistent on making baguettes in the traditional way, try this easy recipe courtesy Laura Vitale.
