A crust above the rest: French baguette granted UNESCO heritage status • FRANCE 24 English

We’ve talked about the baguette multiple times on French Connections, but there’s some exciting news for this quintessential symbol of France! The French baguette has been added to UNESCO’s list of cultural treasures, known as ‘intangible heritage’. The idea of the register is to protect traditions and skills so they are not lost over time like Belgian beer culture or Neapolitan pizza. But if the French baguette is so popular, why does it need protecting? And how do you make a baguette?
