Best French Baguette Made By a Japanese Person Orange County 2013 - Cream Pan
Attention, French people of Orange County: The best baguette de tradition in the county is made not by a man named Jacques or Gilles, but rather by a man named Yoshinori Inada. That's right, a Japanese baker is making the best baguettes in OC. They're long-fermented, perfectly crisp on the outside, and not too airy and light on the inside, like Vietnamese bánh mì. If that isn't enough to convince you to drive to Tustin, they also make the best épi outside of Paris. Sacré bleu!
