Baguette

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.
