Paris seeks heritage status for baguette

British Prime Minister Theresa May is welcomed by French President before a lunch at the Elysee Palace in Paris Tuesday Dec. 12 2017 Emmanuel Macron demands UN recognise the French baguette as a cultural treasure

A cornerstone of French cuisine and a big part of everyday life, France consumes six billion baguettes each year and now President Emmanuel Macron has announced he feels that the baguette should be placed on UNESCO's list.

"The baguette is the envy of the whole world", Macron said in support of a national bakers' association push to have the doughy French icon recognised, the BBC reported. "We must preserve its excellence and our expertise, and it is for this reason that it should be heritage-listed", he told the group of master bakers during the meeting.

Mr Dominique Anract, the head of the national confederation of baking and pastry, earlier said the "marvellous" baguette - made of flour, water, salt and yeast - should "have its rightful place" in world heritage.

"When I see the the growing dominance of French supermarkets and convenience stores in the sale of bread, I say to myself that we must act", he told the food news website Atablula.

'The bread is frozen, some of it comes from Romania or who knows where, nothing is carried out in accordance of the rules of the art'.

The bakers have been inspired by the success of Neapolitan pizzaiuolo (pizza twirling), which joined Unesco's list of "intangible heritage" a year ago. The bakers launched the idea after UNESCO assigned the "intangible heritage" status to the special method of dough twirling practiced by pizza makers in Naples.

Macron made the call after similar rallies by bakers from across France.

Other recent additions to the Representative List of the Intangible Cultural Heritage of Humanity include the Basel Carnival, Cuban Punto music and the Iranian horse riding game called Chogran. The latter focuses on the rituals that accompany the meal, from the wines paired with specific dishes to ho the table tis dressed.
