In 1993, the French created Le D cret Pain which states that a baguette must be made on premises where sold, and can only consist of wheat flour, water, yeast & salt. Enjoy your stick bread dipped in your morning coffee or generously topped with Nutella. Day-old bread can be used to make pain perdu, also known as French Toast!
About Old World Christmas: Each figural glass ornament produced for The Merck Family's Old World Christmas is hand crafted in age-old tradition using the same techniques that originated in the 1800's. Molten glass is mouth-blown into finely carved moulds available only to the Merck Family's Old World Christmas, before a hot solution of liquid silver is poured inside. The ornaments are then hand-painted and glittered in a series of labor-intensive steps to achieve the beautiful creations.
