Grand Prix de la Baguette 2009
Monsieur Franck Tombarel, winner of the 2009 Grand Prix de la Baguette, Paris
It's become a tradition with TBF to celebrate with our friends in the City Of Light, as well as fellow travellers, this annual event. The City of Paris has organized the Grand Prix de la Baguette de la ville de Paris for many years now. The distinguished panel of judges must follow a set of strict submission rules and judging criteria. This year, after much deliberation, the 2009 winner is Monsieur Franck Tombarel, who can now proudly claim that his baguette is officially the best in Paris.
Monsieur Tombarel represents the bakers' "Le Grenier de Félix", located in the 15th arrondisement at 64 avenue Félix Faure, 75015 Paris. The award will be presented in May 2009 on the occasion of the Feast of Bread. Congratulations Monsieur Tombarel!
