Baguette Vending Machine...Oui ou Non?

• 11 August 2011

I'm trying to figure out what to make of this new baguette vending machine phenomenon sweeping Paris thanks to boulanger Jean-Louise Hecht.  When in France, we generally relish in the experience of waking up early to snag a freshly-made baguette at our favorite boulangerie.  However, there have been a few times we've tried to enjoy a late lunch only to find all the boulangeries closed (in France most boulangeries and patisseries close from noon until 2 p.m. for a long lunch).  Very inconvenient if you have hungry children in perhaps a baguette vending machine would come in handy?  But since not all French bread is created equal, I admit I'm skeptical about the quality. 

What do you think?  Oui ou non?

p.s. if you can't wrap your head around a baguette from a vending machine, give my favorite boulangerie near the Eiffel Tower a go.  It's called Le Champ and we've enjoyed their sandwiches and patisserie for years--they are consistently good and the always-present line out the door proves that.

Oh my goodness, I find that so funny! I can say though, that as a former missionary in Paris, I probably would have bought several baguettes that way, while on the go!

Love the idea of a hot baguette after hours!

what a fun idea! as long as it doesn't replace the traditional boulangeries and patisseries i think it's a great on the go option.
