    Timely there’s an article in NYT this week on jamon beurre sandwiches in NY.

    Oddly the best I ever had was from Cafe Vienna in Barcelona. And my all time favorite use of French bread aside from eating the baguette on the way home from a Boulangerie in SW France is as the base for a banh mi. Truly a globe spanning gift.

    Biggest challenge buying a freshly baked baguette is not to eat half of it while coming back home.

    There was a bakery in Marseilles that had fresh baguettes and a panini press to make smash sandwiches. The banquette would still be warm when sliced open for meat and cheese.

    My wife makes a killer french toast with baguettes.

    Next to my wife's apt. in Paris, there is a slightly faded 70's era (yellow and brown decor under fluorescent light) bakery where she goes and gets amazing croissants and baguettes each morning. It appears to be run by an Indian family. Judging by the bags of flour delivered there, the baking gets done on the premises. A place like that in the US runs machines that produce a bread-style food object. What's more is they don't do coffee. Just baking. Coffee is down around the corner. Get your baguette and croissant and then go get your your coffee - why? It tastes good doesn't it? Forget your questions.

    That photo is all over the place and he says he never made any money off most of the use.
