The verdict is in...
The two bakeshops below scored highest in a blind tasting at the Chambre Professionnelle des Artisans Boulangers-Pâtissiers, located on Quai d’Anjou (on Île Saint-Louis), in Paris, France. On February 12th, 143 artisans brought their freshly baked baguette to the contest.
A few were automatically rejected due to size and weight conflicts between what was allowed and what wasn't.
The winner this year, from a Tunisian background, is Anis Bouabsa, 28, who won the Grand Prix de la Meilleure Baguette de Paris 2008.
