The French word for “Rod” is “Baguette.” A Baguette, is a long narrowrod-like loaf of French bread, usually about 2 feet long (though they can be both longer and shorter) and 2-3 inches wide.

A Baguette has a crusty exterior and chewy interior, and is Baked from Dough made without any Oil, therefore turning stale more quickly than many other breads.


There is also an Italian baguette-style bread that is called an Italian Baguette, or often called more simply: Italian bread.
