Commentary

"Bread has something of a special status in France. Boulangeries are as common in France as a corner shop in England. There are various local types of bread specific to different parts of France, and no two bakers are the same. More than 320 baguettes are produced every second in France, amounting to over 10 billion per year. Roughly 97% of French families purchase and consume bread daily and 99.8% of the French population lives less than a 15 minute drive from a boulangerie or pâtisserie. "
