President Macron wants France’s baguette on Unesco heritage list – CWEB.com
The baguette known in the English world as “French bread” should be placed on the UN’s world heritage list, French President Emmanuel Macron said on Friday, saying pizza’s inclusion last year had set a precedent.
“When I see the quality of bread in supermarkets, it is impossible not to get angry,” Dominique Anract, president of the National Confederation of French Patisseries and Bakeries (CNPBF), told food website Atabula. “The bread is frozen, some of it comes from Romania or who knows where, nothing is carried out in accordance of the rules of the art.”
The traditional baguette is already protected in France by a 1993 law.
