Still talking about food... hehe...
Baguette or also known as French bread

A baguette (pronounced /bəˈɡɛt/)

A baguette (pronounced /bəˈɡɛt/) is a specific shape of artisan-style breadcommonly made from basic lean dough, a simple guideline set down by French law, distinguishable by its length, very crisp crust, and slits cut into it to enable proper expansion of gasses and thus formation of the crumb, the white part of bread. The standard diameter of a baguette is approximately 5 or 6 cm, but the bread itself can be up to a meter in length. One baguette typically weighs 250 grams (8.8 oz). It is also known in English as a French stick or a French bread.
