The jury, composed of Christian Faure (owner of the renowned bakery of the same name...), Marie-Pascale Bonne, Marc Simonet and Gabrielle Pellerin will be voting for the best baguette in Montreal. You can also vote for your favorite baguette as a "public's choice" will also be awarded to one of the eight bakeries.
