We were driving towards Loches today when I saw this automatic baguette machine in Ferrière-sur-Beaulieu. I couldn’t believe my eyes! Twice a day, a local baker puts 50 fresh baguettes in the machine.
Nous nous rendions à Loches aujourd’hui lorsque j’ai vu ce distributeur automatique de baguettes à Ferrière-sur-Beaulieu. Je n’arrivais pas à croire mes yeux. Deux fois par jour un boulanger local met 50 baguettes fraîches dans le distributeur.

Wow that surely is original!
Crikey! I’ve heard of these being on campsites, but I’ve never seen one in the street before.
That’s a new one to me!
@Butcherbird86 – Yes, we did a double-take!
@Jane Orson – We were pretty surprised ourselves!
@William – Not surprised.
Well, that’s a good one. I never, ever thought that the French would do something like this, but on the other hand, they’re very clever! I’d try the machine, though I prefer a more personal touch!
This one is only a distributor, but it seems you can buy one that cooks the baguette on demand! I prefer the personal touch myself.
Thanks for sharing your experience. I hope I never have to go through anything like that. It would probably boggle my mind so much that it would randomly implode.
