France’s President Emmanuel Macron praised the “inimitable” French baguette during a speech at the French embassy in Washington DC.
“In these few centimeters passed from hand to hand lies the spirit of French know-how,” Macron said, as he looked lovingly at the crusty piece of French baking in his left hand. The remarks sparked laughter in the audience.
“Many have tried to make it; they just made something industrial that has no taste,” he added with a grin.
“And this ‘French touch’ we have in our baguette is the one we have in other sectors: It’s this additional know-how, this extra soul. So, congratulations on our baguette for today,” Macron concluded.
