A baguette de pain or simply baguette, also called baguette de Paris, is a variety of bread, recognisable by its elongated shape.
Around the world, the baguette is one of the typical symbols of France and, in particular, of Paris, and today baguettes are found in many countries.
A standard baguette is about 4 to 6cm wide, about 3 to 5cm high and about 65cm long. It weighs about 250g. In recent years, an “old-fashioned” baguette has developed on the market, with reduced dimensions (from 30 to 40cm), and with a more pronounced rustic appearance.
