I bought a batard today. I saw it and thought it would make my wife happy. If you didn't know what a batard was, what would you guess it to be?

I think it is French for 'bastard' actually.

Indeed. When the baker gets to the end of the batch of dough used for making baguettes. The bit that is left (the bastard) gets rolled into a stubby loaf. Traditionally the baker would take that one for her lunch.

I'm thinking it's a weight loss instructional video.

I would have thought it was something someone wielded. a smilie

Interesting...

My first thought was a baton. lol lol

It’s a kind of bread. They’re popular with my customers, just behind the baguettes.

Ahh, that's very nice.
Mrs. Budwick likes it when I make bread. My go to recipe for Batard European-Style Hearth Bread can be found here.

I know what a bastard is I'm just wondering what your wife wants with one.
