Baguettes are a trademark of France's food culture. The name for these long loaves of bread come from the Italian word bacchetta, meaning 'wand' or 'baton' and can reach up to one metre in length.

Of course, we humble home bakers do not possess ovens one metre long, so here is a recipe for some mini baguettes.

Most baguettes you buy are white loaves, but using a sourdough mix, you get a deeper flavour and a very attractive rustic looking loaf. you can either make your own starter or buy a ready made sourdough mix.
