French authorities close doors on best baguette.

Jump to last reply

Poor Stéphane Cazenave, winner of Fête du Pain's "Best Traditional Baguette" award, is being forced by local authorities to shut his business down at least one day a week. He may have to layoff one or two employees, while looking at a loss of 250,000 Euros for the year.

I couldn't imagine tolerating a government that dictates how many days of the week I can work. Thank goodness my favorite bread baker in NYC is open seven days. I love great, fresh bread, and I can't imagine starting a day without a slice.

“The fact that work in our country can be considered a crime, and that an artisan’s passion may be constrained in such a way should alert us to the absurdity of our system,” said former prime minister, François Fillon.
