Le Petit Parisien, Willy Ronis (1952)
Even though I’ve lived in France for almost three years, I’m still pleasantly surprised every now and then by cultural discoveries like …
A Baguette Bag!
How cute is that? And practical, too, for keeping your traditions crusty on the outside and fresh on the inside once you get them home from the boulangerie. Do French people use these to carry their baguettes home? Well, I’ve never seen it done, and Michel says that’s not what they’re made for, but what does he know? I would do it. I mean … it’s got a cow motif on it!
In any case, remember this cardinal rule:
NEVER put your good French bread in a plastic bag!
Use a cow-print Baguette Bag instead … or at least the paper sack from the bakery.
Short post, I know,
but I just had to share!
Bon appétit !
P.S. — More on bread here.
