Our Daily Bread: The Baguette

Updated: Oct 11, 2023

Is there anything more emblematically French than a baguette? We don’t think so, given that it was recently given UNESCO status as a piece of ‘Intangible Cultural Heritage’ last November. From sandwiches to soup, toasted or as is—the baguette is as versatile as they come. Here are some of our favorite ways to enjoy the iconic bread.


 



FRESH OUT OF THE GROCERY BAG (YES, YOU READ THAT RIGHT)


This one’s not so much a recipe as it is a fact of everyday French life. It’s not uncommon to see a Parisian nibbling at a piece of the bread on their way home from the supermarché—and frankly, we understand the temptation. There are few simple pleasures in this world other than bread fresh from the market.




GRILLED FIG TARTINES


Okay, we lied. The only thing better than a baguette on its own is a baguette toasted and all dressed up! And if you ask us, nothing suits a toasted baguette (also known as a tartine) like figs, prosciutto, and goat cheese. Here’s a great recipe from Karen at Honestly Yum.





FRENCH ONION SOUP WITH BAGUETTE


The only thing more French than a baguette is a bowl of French Onion Soup. The ancient dish gained a resurgence Stateside during the 1960s, with the then-growing popularity of French cuisine. Since then, it has become a classic staple of fine dining—one that would not be complete without a baguette on the side. We like this recipe by Jeanine and Jack over at Love & Lemons.
