The baguette

The baguette, nothing more brilliant than baking a homemade baguette for breakfast for your guests, of course it will take a little organization. The ideal would be to freeze them at the end of the last shoot, but I will do some testing and I will keep you posted. I love to bake bread and I also really enjoy tasting it right out of the oven, what could be more natural than making homemade bread, well I admit that it takes a little time, but the result is so rewarding and in the more you know what you eat. The baguette a French tradition, I had a few inconclusive tests, however each time we ate the bread, no more stale bread at home. As you can see I always take so much pleasure with my Christmas present. The baguette for breakfast, you will love and what a pleasure to see it being eaten with such speed, Léonie loves having lunch with the hot baguette.
