National French Bread Day
Oui monsieur, Oui! Please, give me another loaf French bread! A long, thin slice of French bread, also known as a baguette, is a tempting treat. It’s best enjoyed warm from the oven. This delicious treat is distinguished by its crispy crust and soft centre. This bread is a delight to all who are near it.
French people usually buy baguettes fresh because they have to be eaten immediately. They typically shop for their baguettes two times a day, one in the morning before heading to work and one at night on their return home. Although it can be difficult to track, the Observatoire du Pain (The French Bread Observatory), estimates that French people consume 320 baguettes each second of every day.
Access to bread is so important that Paris legislators prohibited certain community bakeries closing during summer holidays. This was to ensure that no one neighborhood would be without bread.
National French Bread Day offers a wonderful opportunity to enjoy classic comfort food at its best while learning more about French culture.
For more than 200 years, the French have been making long bread sticks. But it wasn’t until 1920 that we got our current baguette.
France passed a law in 1920 prohibiting anyone from working before 4am. This made it impossible for French bakers not to have their breads ready before everyone went to work. They had to find a way to bake bread faster but didn’t want their customers to be cheated.
Voila! The quick baking baguette is here!
The French bakers who were able to create bread in a longer shape found it easier to cut and store. This was originally a way to speed up the baking process, but it has since become a revolutionary way of enjoying bread.
It doesn’t need to be difficult to enjoy National French Bread Day. You can simply serve a warm loaf of French bread with butter and cheese. Enjoy the continental experience by pairing a glass of French wine with it. More, s’il vous plait!

There are many recipes online and in books, but the most common ingredients are bread flour, sea salt and warm water. To be considered authentic, “French Bread” must contain these four ingredients.

Making French Bread is easy. You only need to mix, knead, allow the dough time to rise and then roll it out into the desired shape. It is delicious because it doesn’t contain any preservatives. However, it should be eaten immediately.
You can achieve the look by wearing a black and striped shirt with sleeves that reach to the elbow. You can also add plain black or red trousers. You could also add a pair of black or red pants. You could also draw a curly moustache (with eyebrow pencils or mascara).
