A crunch, chewy French baguette is good in any seasonBread. It’s simple, it’s hearty, it’s a staple of every cuisine on earth. Yet the French baguette is arguably the queen of breads, perfect for sandwiches or with soup, salads, stews, or simply on its own. As the cold weather moves in, we all need more baguettes in our lives. Since you can’t yet enjoy a delicious, fresh-baked baguette from Maison Parisienne, you might even try making one on your own.
“Eat breakfast like a king, have lunch like a prince, and dine like a beggar.”So goes the French saying, but Americans might be surprised to find that traditional French breakfasts are very light and never savory. Even King Louis XIV, who was famous for his monumental lunch and dinner banquets, preferred a breakfast consisting of nothing more than tea and broth.
