Bread is such a symbol of France, so profoundly embedded in the country’s traditions, that to visit a boulangerie and queue with the locals is one of the great cultural experiences of France. Quite recently President Macron recommended to add French bread to the UNESCO list of national cultural treasures. We’ll find out that the importance of bread is reflected throughout history, the arts and literature as well as everyday life in France.
