Baguette is a long and thin French white bread, soft inside, with a crispy crust. The standard length of the baguette is approximately 25 inches. Baguette became popular in Paris in the 1920s because it required less time to lift and bake than regular bread, and this allowed bakers to save time after the introduction of the law in France on starting work from 4 am.
There are several versions regarding the origin of the baguette. According to one of them, a thin bun appeared during the Napoleonic Wars so that soldiers could wear it in their pants. However, it is obvious that this is not very convenient, and the military at all times preferred coarser bread.
French baguette is an incredibly delicious bread. Well, who would refuse a piece of fresh crispy baguette, a little butter, a favorite jam, and of course a real freshly brewed coffee, a great start to the day, isn't it?
