Félicitations to Djibril Bodian of Le Grenier à Pain Abbesses for winning First Prize in the 2015 Grand Prix de la Baguette de Tradition Française de la Ville de Paris, a.k.a. The Best Baguette in Paris Competition. If Bodian’s name sounds familiar, it’s because the Senegalese born, second generation baker also won the top prize five years ago. His bakery will be providing bread for President Hollande and the Elysées Palace for an entire year, just as he did for Sarkozy back in 2010.
For the 4th year in a row (see past results below), a bakery in Montmartre has taken home the top prize. Congratulations to Pascal Barillon of Au Levain d'Antan! We'll report on the remaining top 10 results as they are revealed later tonight.
