Artisan Batards

A ‘football’ shaped loaf, the batard was one of the last classic shapes the French formed. And since we have some space to fill, here’s a useless piece of bread trivia: The word ‘batard’ is French for ‘bastard’. Originally French bakers only shaped their French dough into baguette and boule (round) shapes. Then in the 19th century a baker came up with the loaf shape. It was a hit. The loaf wasn’t shaped like a baguette or a round, it was something in between. So customers referred to it as a “bastard” hence… batard. Voila! La trivia Francais!
