French President Joins Calls For Baguette To Be Recognised As One Of World's Cultural Treasures.

: 01/13/2018 - 16:29

French President Emmanuel Macron has joined calls by bakers for the traditional baguette to be recognised as one of the world's cultural treasures.

The status would aim to draw attention to the importance of safeguarding essential items that make up the world's cultural diversity.

The call came after the art of Naples' 'dough-twirling pizza makers' was given the nod last month.

Irish uilleann piping was granted the same status, and made it on to Unesco's list of ''intangible heritage."
