To find a Frenchman, look for the freshly baked baguette tucked under his arm. Few Parisians manage to make it home without breaking off a chunk and enjoying the warm, yeasty goodness. Perhaps if they knew this savory French-style guacamole awaited them, more baguettes would survive to the front door!

Guacamole is best made as close to serving as possible. For short-term storage, seal in an airtight container with a piece of plastic wrap directly against the surface of the guacamole.
