At last I’ve had some croissants for breakfast this morning in France. There were no fireworks, nor did gorgeous light pink butterflies beat their wings in joy all around me. In fact, it wasn’t the magical experience I was irrationally hoping for.
Just in case you are disappointed, please don’t be because the brioche sucrée that I had afterwards was truly amazing.
There is a difference between straight croissants and crab shaped croissants
This morning I learnt that the straight croissants, like the ones I ate pictured here, are made without butter. The crab shaped croissants are the ones made with butter. Fancy that. I had always thought that the shapes were due to how the baker felt like making them, but apparently it’s a not so secret code about their butter content.
Next time I’ll have the crab shaped ones. I’m sure those will make my croissant loving heart flutter. Which ones would you prefer?
