The Best Baguette at Home

Nathalie Mould P'22
“Good bread is the most fundamentally satisfying of all foods; and good bread with fresh butter, the greatest of feasts.” 
― James Beard
My name is Nathalie (parent of Cecilia ’22) and I'm a Mom who loves to bake and cook. Growing up in France and Germany instilled in me a lifelong love of baking and fresh food. I started baking fresh bread and pastries at age 11 and haven’t stopped since. 
The European tradition of welcoming friends into a new home with salt (so your life will always have flavor) and homemade bread (so that your cupboards will always be full) has resulted in many of those friends asking me to teach them. What started as a hobby led to training with a French Master baker in Paris. Homemade bread is my passion, as there really is no comparison to commercially made bread. The reaction I get from my family and friends to my homemade bread and pastries is always positive and happy, a combination of delight, joy, comfort, and appreciation. 
Homemade bread is a wonderful way to show love and care and friendship to the people close to you. I want to share this talent and knowledge with you so that you and your family and friends can also experience the delight of delicious homemade bread!
