It took 18 bakers several hours, but a new record has been set for the world’s longest baguette. The record has been set by a group of bakers in the French town of Suresnes.

The 140-metre baguette was successfully baked on Sunday and representatives from the Guinness World Records were on hand to award the official record status.

According to them, the French baguette was longer than the Italian version and former record-holder baked in 2019.

In order to be identified as a baguette, the bread had to be at least five centimetres thick which is standard for a baguette.

Just over 90 kilograms of flour was used to bake the baguette. The group of bakers started to shape the dough at 03:00 and by 05:00 they started to feed the dough into the oven. It had to be done slowly to ensure the parts of the baguette in the oven were evenly baked.

The mayor of Suresnes announced the news of the broken record on the town’s website.

“Well done to the bakers. Suresnes is proud to have been the scene of this record for the longest baguette in the world, which promotes a national symbol of our gastronomy as well as the artisans who perpetuate its know-how.”
