A Baguette(s) In Paris: A Tale of Carbs & Chanel

baguetteparis

Nothing is more sacred to a Parisian than a baguette (well except maybe their Chanel boybag). Parisian love their baguettes so much they even have laws around them, the Bread Decree of 1993 states; baguettes must be made and sold at the same location, cannot be frozen, and may contain only flour, water, yeast, and salt. Despite the draconian nature of the laws at least they make sense. Our favorite state of Texas has surprisingly less useful laws such as; “needing to ask your neighbors permission before eating their garbage, or “its illegal to litter with the intention of flirting.”

With baguettes having such cultural importance I felt in order to truly understand Parisians life & culture I needed to spend some time with this national symbol. So I ordered some baguettes and waited by the Eiffel Tower for them to arrive.

Here I wait for my second love of carbs in baguette form. One guess to my first love guys. (Hint, It’s shiny and wearable)

What do you guys think of a baguette art frame, this is the age of contemporary art anything is possible, no? (yes guys I am aware the frame is not proper, we were a little high on carbs at this point.)

Of course in Paris, street buskers are actually a mini string quartet playing vivaldi. I erected a mini Eiffel tower in honor of their beautiful music.

We couldn’t let all the baguettes go to waste so we handed them out to homeless people and feed the remainder to pigeons. Sorry Parisians I know you like your pigeons as much as the average New Yorker does. Hope your not too mad at me for feeding 500 pigeons. Disclaimer: I actually like pigeons I had a pet pigeon named Snowy when I was younger.

  3. I love pigeons too! And I did the very same thing at the Louvre hehehe! I really love that law about their bread, it means it’s free from preservatives and such and it also means you only buy what you actually need for the day rather than buying 100 loaves and freezing them. I also love that you handed those baguettes out to the homeless. So much respect and awe for you missy.
