Did You Know That Senegal is world renowned for its bread?
Baguettes in particular are the most delicious delicacy, with soft, practically melt-in-your-mouth centers and perfectly thin, crisp crusts. It is hard to stop eating before consuming an entire loaf. Yes — It is THAT good! In fact, if you don’t stop at one of the many markets or patisseries directly after morning prayer, you won’t be able to satisfy your craving.
The baguette was introduced to Senegalese culture by the French colonizers. The Senegalese adopted the breadmaking technique, adding their own unique twist and elevating it to another level entirely. If you ever find yourself in Senegal, be sure to indulge. You won’t be sorry.
