Vive la France! Bakers Break Record with World’s Longest Baguette, Defeating Italy

World’s Longest Baguette

In an impressive culinary feat, French bakers succeeded in baking the world’s longest baguette, measuring an astounding 140.53 meters (461 ft). This achievement marks a triumphant return for France, reclaiming a record that had been held by Italy for five years.

The monumental baguette, approximately 235 times longer than the traditional version, was crafted in Suresnes, a suburb of Paris, during an event organized by the French confederation of bakers and pastry chefs.

Italy’s previous record of 132.62 meters, set in June 2019 in the city of Como, was surpassed by the French bakers’ remarkable creation.

The ambitious endeavor began in the early hours of the morning, with French bakers meticulously kneading and shaping the dough before placing it into a specially designed, slow-moving oven mounted on wheels.

Anthony Arrigault, one of the bakers involved in the endeavor, expressed elation at breaking the record, stating, “Everything has been validated, we are all very happy to have beaten this record and that it was done in France.” The authenticity of the achievement was confirmed by a judge from the Guinness World Records.

Following the official verification, a portion of the elongated baguette, which had to maintain a minimum thickness of 5 cm throughout, was ceremoniously cut and shared with the public.

The remainder of the baguette was designated for distribution to homeless individuals, embodying the spirit of generosity and community.

According to official regulations, a traditional French baguette must measure approximately 60 cm in length, consist solely of wheat flour, water, salt, and yeast, and weigh around 250 grams.

This remarkable accomplishment not only celebrates French culinary craftsmanship but also underscores the cultural significance and enduring legacy of the iconic baguette within the nation’s heritage.
