French bakers want UNESCO designation for baguettes

[quote]Bakers say the UNESCO listing would protect a know-how that has passed through generations and shield the baguette from imposters around the world.

[quote]The UNESCO "intangible heritage" marker - meant to recognize oral traditions, performing arts, social practices, rituals and methods of traditional craftsmanship - already covers ancient methods of making flat breads in Iran and Kazakhstan.

But what does DL think?

When I was a kid in the 1970's we NEVER said baguettes we said FRENCH BREAD.

by Anonymousreply 502/22/2021

the french take themselves way too seriously

I mean it's not like cheeses or wines or olive oils or hams that come from certain regions. Or am I wrong, do the French use a particular French wheat flour and French yeast to make their bread? C'mon now with all this pretentiousness!

^. It has to be made with cigarette stained fingers and a jaunty beret.

I'd take a freshly baked Kaisersemmel over this French mediocrity anytime! And ever since the bread box was invented baguettes also became very impractical for storing - you can't even put the damn things in without breaking them in half first.

I'm down. A freshly baked baguette is the merde.

Have you ever heard the shortest joke in the world?

“Pretentious? Moi!?!”
