Baguette competition for chance to bake bread for French President

Baguette competition for chance to bake bread for French President

The baguette is a French cultural symbol par excellence and the Grand Prix de la Baguette de la Ville de Paris competition on April 25, 2013 saw 203 Parisian bakers who compete for recognition as finest purveyor of one of France's most iconic staples. The baguettes are registered, given anonymous white wrappings and an identification number. They are then carefully weighed and measured to ensure they do not violate the contest's strict rules. 52 entries were withdrawn for failing to measure between 55-70cm long or not matching the acceptable weight of between 250-300g. Every year, the winner earns the privilege of baking bread for the French President. Click on the thumbnails to view photos.
