pain de franceThe term baguette means a long, wand-shaped bread. The traditional baguette contains only white flour, water, yeast, and salt. Pain complet (complete bread) describes the French whole wheat bread. Pain de Campagne is literally ‘country bread’ and is a sourdough bread

Ingredients such as milk, butter, and/or sugar make the bread more tender while adding to its aroma and flavor. This type of bread is called a Viennoise, a baguette look-alike with a scalloped surface of narrowly-spaced cuts. Sweeter than the baguette and softer to chew, it’s a creamier choice as a breakfast bread with dark French coffee, especially when spread with butter or jam.
