Video: How to Make French Baguettes
You really can make authentic French baguettes from scratch. See how it's done!
In this video, Chef John will show you how to make homemade French baguettes. It's not only possible to make delicious bakery-quality baguettes from scratch, it's also fairly easy. The key to working with the sticky baguette dough is well-floured hands. The other trick is to introduce a little humidity into the high-heat oven as the baguettes bake. The bread emerges from the oven so gorgeous with a tender, light, and chewy inside and delightfully crunchy, thin crust. Très magnifique! Watch the video, then get the recipe for Chef John’s French Baguettes. Enjoy them with a healthy, if that's the word, smear of real butter. See more Chef John videos >>
