Chef's tip

You can freeze assembled baguettes ready for cooking the next time. Don't forget to label them up with the date of freezing - do not exceed two months. Wrap them in cling film and freeze. Reheat in a preheated oven from frozen for about 20 minutes at medium heat at 180°C / 160°C fan / gas mark four.
