I love baguettes. Especially the ritual of going to the boulangerie and it being served still warm from the oven. I always buy at least two because I eat most of one on my way home! Baguettes are fantastic for mopping up sauces and making a simple cheese sandwich just that little bit more glamourous!
But oh what a faff! You have to go to the boulangerie at least two times a day. The baguettes you bought in the morning are hard by the evening. When you go to the boulangerie you can't help but be tempted by the array of deliciousness before you, which is niether good for the waistline or the purse!
Sometimes I just despair for good British white sliced bread.
It lasts for days, freezes beautifully and is perfect for spreading without flaking everywhere, not to mention toast!
We don't say "the best thing since sliced bread" for nothing!
