Life is a baguettelle, old chum! Here’s the delicious news of the 27th edition of the artisan competition… Bravo to baker Taieb Sahal – his beautiful baguette wins Grand Prix de la Meilleure Baguette (“best in town”) 2020 in collaboration with the Syndicat des boulangers du Grand Paris. It’s a case of third time lucky for Tunis-born Taieb (aged 26), the head baker at Maison Julien. He kneads daily from 4am at the family-owned traditional address at 13, rue Pierre Demours in the 17th arrondissement. “It’s great, of course!” Taieb Sahal told Le Parisien that he’s happy and also very moved. “I was not confident that I’d win this award – boy I worked so hard for it!” He shares his joy with the entire MJ bakery team who supported him all the way. Taieb explains: “When the baguettes came out of the oven in the morning (on the 5th of March) I hesitated over the choice and finally entered the best looking golden baguette.” With his award, Taieb Sahal wins a €4,000 endowment. He also has the honor, for a year, of being the artisan baker – the official supplier – to the kitchens of Chef Guillaume Gomez at the Palais de l’Elysée. “I don’t know yet how it will work, but it’s part of the joy of entering this competition. It’s a tradition, it’s important! “ Now famous for its award winning traditional baguette (€1.20) the Maison Julien bakery has plenty of irresistible, mouthwatering products. Check out “island bread”, “sportsman’s bread”, “the giant with pumpkin seeds” and “organic ginger and rye bread”.
