The best baguette in Toronto goes as well with your morning café au lait as they do with your evening cassoulet. Baked to golden perfection, these baguettes have a crisp crust that yields to a delicate, airy crumb, ideal for eating with any meal of the day.
Thought to have been invented in Paris in the early 20th century, the baguette is one of France’s most popular and most ubiquitous exports. All too often, though, baguettes fall victim to incorrect ingredient proportions, unskilled baking or handling, and are nothing more than elongated, insipid loaves.
For a proper baguette that would make any Parisian proud, it’s best to frequent the right spots. These places are run by artisans familiar with the exact techniques required to mix, shape, proof and bake perfect baguettes.
Though best eaten by the banks of the Seine, an elegant baguette can at least transport you to another time and place. As the centrepiece of a picnic, an accompaniment to a cheese plate, or just nibbled alongside a tumbler of wine, Toronto’s best baguettes are a simple pleasure worth seeking out.
