Ah! A croissant!

That simply delicious flaky cresent shaped pastry made with butter…

I don’t know who doesn’t love a good croissant. For breakfast , lunch or just a munch.

One word association for French will immediately bring to mind the croissant.

Did you know that the croissant is not really a french invented bread?

History reveals that this pastry originated in Austria but the French adopted is as their own by tweaking the recipe and making it with puffed pastry.

I don’t want to begin a debate on it’s origins.

Let’s all agree to simply enjoy this tasty pastry and make a mental toast to whoever first made the croissant. Compliments to the chef!
