Today I’ll tell you the secret recipe of the homemade french baguette! A recipe very easy to make. I also slipped you a little video in the recipe in order to show you the professional method for kneading bread. I knead my dough by hand but you can of course use a food processor. This is the first time I tried this recipe and I was thrilled by the result. The only problem is that people won’t believe you when you’ll say that you made ​​them !
