Notice to bread lovers looking for the perfect baguette in their neighborhood ... and fans of the good tradition who can not help but bite into the quignon as soon as they cross the bakery ...
The Grand Prix for the best baguette in Paris
Tadam! The Grand Prix for the best baguette in Paris , high mass of French bread, was held on Friday, September 24 at the Chambre Syndicale des Boulangers.
Concretely, a jury of 12 people, including Guillaume Gomez , ex-chef of the Élysée, and Taïeb Sahal , last year's winner, met to taste and select the best baguettes in Paris. A high-precision task, with significant stakes: the winner not only wins a line of new customers, curious and greedy, but also the right to become the official supplier of the Élysée for a year!
In total, more than 173 artisan chopsticks have been examined and tested. For that, 5 criteria of equal importance: the aspect and the cooking , the quality of the crumb , the perfume.
