Types of bread: Banette

This is a continuation of a couple of blog posts I wrote last year concerning different types of bread.  The photograph below is of a bread called a "banette".  As you can see, it looks quite similar to a traditional French "baguette" except that the ends of the banette are tapered.  The banette is served in its own paper bag which says in French, "La Banette, L'Originale ... Toujours imitée jamais égalée", which roughly translates as the original bannette is always copied but the copies never match the true taste.
