This baguette is the core of our farm-based baking business, The Local Loaf. Customers say it’s addicting. It’s unlike a traditional baguette in that it’s soft and flavorful — you can easily tear off chunks from the loaf. It’s perfect for dipping in olive oil or spreading with butter — or even on its own, thanks to the olive oil and salt we top it with. It’s also good for sandwiches, and it makes a great base for bruschetta.

To make this homemade baguette recipe, you’ll need a baguette pan, which supports the unwieldy dough and turns out consistent, professional results. Matfer blued steel pans from France are perfect. You can find them online through specialty baking sites or Amazon.
