Mini baguette or ficelle. Where?
I need to prepare 50 sandwiches a la joans on 3rd ham & brie. Where can I find the best price and quality. Thanks
Not the best, but not bad if crisped in an oven, are those from La Brea bakery. They are available at Gelson's, but for 50 you'd probably have to order them in advance.
I have found ones that I have been very pleased with at:
La Maison du Pain
5373 W Pico Blvd
Los Angeles, CA 90019
Also, I am fond of the small baguettes that are used for the sandwiches at:
3156 Glendale Blvd
Los Angeles, CA 90039
I have been able to buy one or two that have not been made into their sandwiches, you may have better luck with your larger order.
Possibly best if you like the crispy outsie-chewy inside kind, but definitely the cheapest per -- Bay Cities on Lincoln in Santa Monica.
