A decent baguette in Connecticut
I'm picky about my baguettes. I hate it when they're essentially Italian bread stretched out into a different shape and passed off as that which they are not.
I like my baguettes light and airy - with a shattering crust and some flavor.
La Petite France in Stafford Springs makes a decent one, but I want to know about other places, too, particularly places relatively nearby to Hartford.
The best baguettes Ive had in Conn. are a bit of a haul for you - Judie's on Grove Street in New Haven. It's not a classic baguette, really, but it sure is delicious with a rich flavor, soft lacy inside and salty crunchy outside.
Judie's sells at some of the health food stores around the area, so maybe you can call to ask if they deliver to your area. Judie's also had a mail-order business when it was in Branford years ago. Not sure if that's still the case, but worth checking into.
