The secrets of good bread

There is nothing better than a good hot and crispy baguette, with the right color, and a soft crumb.

A good flour: the choice of ingredients is essential. A good baguette made with healthy and unadulterated ingredients: no additives, no enzymes and no added gluten. A homemade baguette is heavy and not very large. It is much more airy with fatter crumbs while an industrial wand is large and very light, a tighter crumb that will tend to be dry.

The appearance: the crust should be very brown, golden, smooth and the furrows well open. Ideally, the color should turn white towards the bottom of the bread.

The taste: the taste of the bread varies from one baker to another, from one type of bread to another, and the choice of ingredients (such as flour). Ideally the bread should not be too dirty.
