Who will succeed La Provence as the best baguette in Los Angeles? Two years after David Thau’s bakery took home the grand prize, French Morning is organizing a second edition of the popular Best Baguette competition. And once again, we need your help!
It is, in fact, up to the readers of Frenchly and French Morning to select the finalists for this major competition. Just fill out the form below with the makers of your favorite baguettes (submission period ends February 20 at 9pm). There are no restrictions: chains, grocery stores and small local bakeries are all allowed, as long as they make their own baguettes from scratch.
This final will take place on Sunday, March 17, from 12pm to 3pm at National Hotel. Tickets are already on sale here for early bird prices. The jury will be doing a blind taste test, ensuring that the competition is fair, to decide the winner of the Grand Prix for best baguette and the prize for best specialty bread. The public, meanwhile, will be able to walk between the stands of the finalists and decide for themselves which baguette is best, with a selection of jams, coffee, and a glass of wine to help them make a choice. Whichever baker gets the most votes from the attendees will with the Public Prize. Those interested in attending also have the choice to buy a brunch package.
