In the 1980’s, the French became less and less enamored with what was becoming the “Standard Baguette”. A Baguette that was lacking in flavor; being made with the use of processed flour, full of additives and just not what it was in the 1930’s. This lead to a nationwide plan to restore the noble reputation of this ‘Flower” of Parisian Gastronomy.
In 1993, this was accomplished with the “Bread Decree of 1993”. Regulations were put in place to solidify the appellation of what is now known as “Baguette de Tradition de Francaise”. Not your typical baguette, “Baguette Tradition” is made using an updated recipe from the 1930’s with a short kneading process, a long fermentation and the use of flour without additives. Not only is Baguette Tradition much more flavorful, but with it’s lack of additives and slower rising process, it is generally kinder to our health as well.
