You have a lot of breads to choose from; however choose French bread today.
French bread become an iconic symbol of French cuisine in the twentieth century.
A new law passed in 1920 banned workers from beginning their shift before 4 a.m. so customers could have fresh bread when they arrived. It would have made it difficult for French bakers to have fresh bread ready for their customers in the morning if workers prepared it earlier. So bakers turned to the fast-baking baguette for a solution, and soon it became a part of daily life.
A baguette is a long thin loaf of bread with a thick crust and often having large bubbles of air inside, popular in and associated with France.
While the baguette claims the title of “French bread,” it is not the only French bread. France produces many other famous types of bread including: croissants, brioche, pain de campagne, batard, pain de mie, and fougasse.
It is interesting that French bread goes well with Italian dishes such as spaghetti or lasagna. No matter what you eat your French bread with, enjoy every bite.
