Because there was no bread did Marie Antoinette really say "let them eat cake"?
I believe the consensus is that she did not say that sometime before the French Revolution, but the French certainly love their bread be it baguette or all the other choice shapes that are available.
I have to say that there is nothing to beat a fresh baguette from the Boulagerie with a liberal coating of fresh butter from the market.
This photograph was taken in a market town in the Pyrenees.
