UNESCO announces a positive decision on France's application to include the French baguette in the UNESCO List of Intangible Heritage. The decision was taken within the framework of the 17th session of the Intergovernmental Committee for the Safeguarding of the Intangible Cultural Heritage which is taking place in Morocco.

Baguette was chosen as a contender for inclusion in the UNESCO list by France last spring. Among its competitors were the zinc roofs of Paris and the Arbois Wine Festival, but in the end preference was given to the country's culinary symbol - which is associated with the French way of life, like a glass of wine or a striped sailboat.

The request to include the baguette recipe in the UNESCO list was initially submitted by the federation of French bakers, pointing to the important economic component of the national bakery production.
