The Best Baguette In Paris

Bookmark and Share

The art of baking is alive and well in Paris and the traditional baguette is king of bread. Parisians are serious baguette connoisseurs, so much so, that a yearly competition for the most perfect baguette is held in the city.

The Grand Prix de la Meilleure Baguette de Paris is a coveted award. The recipient is awarded the sum of 4000 euros and the honor of supplying the residence of the President of France, the Elysee Palace, with 25 baguettes per day for one year.

On March 17th, 2009, a jury headed by the deputy mayor of Paris, convened at the Chambre Professionnelle des Artisans Boulangers-Patissiers on Quai d'Anjou. They came prepared to assess the quality of 130 baguettes, adhering to strict criteria.

Firstly, a traditional baguette must be made with pure additive-free flour, water and salt. It must be kneaded, shaped and baked on the premises of the baker himself. Jurors inspect the loaves for length (must be 70cm), weight (between 250 and 300 grams) and certain artisanal, aesthetic qualities. Aroma, appearance, crust, interior, flavor...how does one declare a single baker's work to be better than all others in Paris? The neighborhood boulangerie, a thriving institution, offers residents freshly baked delicious loaves, daily and consumers become fiercely devoted to the work of their favorite bakers.

This year's recipient of the prize goes to:
Frank Tombarel
Le Grenier de Felix
64, avenue Felix Faure
15th Arrondissement

In 2008 the award was bestowed upon:
Anis Bouabsa
Au Duc del la Chapelle
32, rue Tristan Tzara
18th Arrondissement

In 2007 the baguette maker of the year was:
Arnaud Delmontel
57, rue des Abbesses
18th Arrondissement

2006 was the winning year for:
Jean-Pierre Cohier
270, rue Faubourg St. Honore
8th Arrondissement

at Yahoo's front page and watch how they create news headlines to grab people interested.
You might try adding a video or a picture or two to get people interested about everything've got to say.
Just my opinion, it might bring your posts a little
livelier.

When I look at your blog site in Safari, it looks fine but when opening in Internet Explorer, it
has some overlapping. I just wanted to give you a
quick heads up! Other then that, great blog!

Hello. I see that you don't update your page too often. I know that writing posts is time
consuming and boring. But did you know that there is a tool that allows you to create new articles using existing content (from
article directories or other websites from your niche)?
And it does it very well. The new articles are high quality and pass the copyscape test.
