My twelve year old son asked for a baguette the other day.... an entire baguette.... all for himself. He was not sharing. I guess you could say that he has acclimated to life in France very well.
Which brings me to my newest brocante-hunt
I have found only two so far! As many things do in French homes, items like this are kept for generations so it's not common to find vintage ones in brocantes and 'puces'. Maybe that's why I love them so much!
So here's to my latest 'treasure hunt'! The fabulous one in the pictures with the orange liner is most likely from the 1940's -50's...... tres jolie! The other, the handsomely gorgeous wicker one sold only a few days after I posted it on Sunday Brocantes.....
When I took a survey about where most people stored their baguettes, the common consensus was that most of the time the loaf if it lasts long enough to be served at a meal and not eaten before, is never around long enough to be stored!
But if you do have the unusual gift of restraint and are seeking an authentic French baguette storage solution--keep an eye on my shop! You may---possibly---find one there!
A bientot mes amis!.....and bon appetit!
