They're pretty easy to make.

Just had a peameal bacon and cheddar on a baguette with honey mustard. Not all that healthy but damn it was tasty. A baguette from the local baker costs $1.99

That's not bad for a loaf of bread I suppose.

It's the same 'COLD BAGUETTE!' prop. It gets passed around from movie to movie. It wont fire.

It costs .21 cents when I bake baguettes myself.  It would be only .07 if I bought the Wegman's store brand flour.

In France, the bread is rising.

the long, crunchy staple could be going up in price by 3 to 5 centimes (4 to 6 cents), from its average of about 89 centimes (just over $1).
"Although that might not seem like a lot, it's a huge increase. The baguette is precious. It has only gone up 23 centimes in the last 20 years,"


So, what you are saying is that the price has been artificially deflated all that time and is due for a permanent adjustment?
We.

Hey France, just like your delusions about everything since Napoleon, your baguette is a LIE!


Thankfully this is local, as are many other great bakeries
