French typical cake there is a variety that has been known by the culinary enthusiasts, but when talking baguette then the story will grow with the more interesting. The public recognizes it as a traditional French bakery with a unique history, fat and long form, also rough texture, but make no mistake, the inside is soft and crisp.
You can pay more attention, the size can reach 65 cm - 1 meter, and require a separate effort to be able to spend it, especially if you enjoy a baguette with a diameter of 5-6 cm.
The popularity of baguettes as snack foods is also recognized, and is widely known as a part of French daily life, which makes the president express his desire to register baguettes on UNESCO's world heritage list.
This made headlines since his interview with radio Europe 1, like a quote on CNN, when Macron revealed that this baguette or French bread 'makes the whole world jealous.' I think you can trust this, that's how it is.
"We must preserve the excellence and the manufacturing process. This is why (baguette) needs to be (classified) as inheritance."
Interesting interview of course, considering it is related to other culinary from Italy, Macron had connected his request with the success of 'proposal' Neapolitan pizza from Italy entered the UNESCO list last year.

Certainly will get a response, Friday, January 12, Dominique Anract, president of the confederation of French bakery and national cake asked Macron to support their desire to get world recognition of the baguette. Simply want to protect the quality of traditional baguettes against the growing number of large supermarkets and mini markets that sell bread.
Macron immediately replied, "I know (ability) of our baker, they see Neapolitan Pizza can be classified in world heritage, so they say, 'Why not with a baguette?' And they're right."
Decent desires from French food creators, regardless in 2010, UNESCO incorporated a 'gastronomic meal of the French' in UNESCO's list of non-UNESCO cultural heritage practices.
Aperitif gastronomic food (drinks before meals) and end with liquers, at least four types of heavy meals, starter, fish and or meat with vegetables, cheeses and desserts.
Interviews are still continuing about the daily life of this baguette typical bread.
"It does not matter what they believe, but everyone has (baguette)."
Macron added his explanation later, "It has been a part of humanity since its inception."
