A Senegal-born baker at Le Grenier à Pain Abbesses in the Montmartre (38 Rue des Abbesses) has won a contest for the best baguette. Djibril Bodian, the son of a baker, moved to France when he was six. Baguettes are an important and delicious part of every day life in Paris. More than 160 baguettes were judged in The Grand Prix de la Baguette. Makes me want to go to Paris and bite into a crispy baguette!
