ABOUT FRENCH BAKING AND PASTRY-MAKING
French baking and pastry-making need no introduction !
France is famous for its bread, wine and cheeses. Croissants and baguettes are symbols of French know how. They’re known all over the world.
In France, bread and pastries are mostly made by craftsmen.
There are 32,000 bakers’ and pastry shops throughout the country – that’s 1 shop for every 1800 inhabitants. Craftsmen hold 65% of the market – their competitors are industrial bakeries and supermarket chains.
In France, there are laws for the way bread is made and bakers must stick to these laws. The French are very proud of the quality of their bread and cakes and the traditions surrounding them.
