Make Croissants for Jan 30th National Croissant Day
National Croissant Day
January 30, 2021, is National Croissant Day in the United States, so why not start your day with a café creme and a flaky croissant?
Croissants are not typically Provencal fare, but you can expect every respectable bakery to present their version of this French pastry for sale. However, if you want to find the good stuff listen to the Parisians debating where to find a decent baguette, the best tarte tropézienne and a croissant that might rival their patisserie in Paris.
Or look for a line-up (photo in Antibes).
Paula Kane of A Table en Provence says that the quality of the butter makes the difference when you are making viennoiserie. North American butter is very different than European. The higher moisture content makes pastries a little flabbier, and flabby just won’t do when it comes to croissants. Here is her recipe, enjoy a croissant this weekend!
