Best baguette baker


Tunisia-born Parisian baker Ridha Khadher, winner of the Best Baguette of Paris 2013 award, holds his baguettes in his bakery after the verdict in Paris on Thursday. The competition saw 203 Parisian bakers who competed for recognition as the finest purveyor of one of France’s most iconic staples. The baguettes are registered, given anonymous white wrappings and an identification number. They are then carefully weighed and measured to ensure they do not violate the contest’s strict rules. Fifty-two entries were withdrawn for failing to measure between 55 and 70 centimeters (27.5 inches) long, or for not matching the acceptable weight of between 250 and 300 grams (10.6 ounces). Every year, the winner earns the privilege of baking bread for the French president.
