A type of bread very similar to a French baguette only it is smaller in size. Ficelle is a French term meaning “string” and it is prepared with the same type of dough as a baguette. The dough is usually made from bread flour or all-purpose flour or a combination of both. Like the baguette, the bread features a crispy crust and a soft, chewy crumb. The length may be about the same as a baguette, but the diameter and weight of the bread is usually about half, however some versions are shorter in length as well.
