The best shortlisted entries were delivered to Maison Novelli, one of London’s top restaurants where a panel of experts including top French chef, restaurateur and ex baker, Jean Christophe Novelli, staff writer of British Baker magazine, Dan Lepard and La Baume winemaker, Ashley Huntington judged the winning baguettes.


Commenting on their win, Mr Stopien of Deliciously French said:  “This is excellent news.  All of our breads are baked on the premises and we only use the finest ingredients sourced direct from France so we are very pleased that the quality has been acknowledged.”


The winners of the La Baume Best Baguette competition were announced at the same time as new research by NOP research revealed that the Brits are a nation of Francophiles aspiring to a French lifestyle including French wine, French cooking, shorter working hours and a warmer climate.
