Bread is one of my favourite things to make and its true what they say about kneading dough, it really is therapeutic and relaxing. I'm not going to put the recipe up for my croissants, just photos of the process but if anyone wants it im happy to share it.

So the idea with croissants in true French style is to saturate the dough with as much butter as it can hold then fold it over and do it again.

Then the dough is rolled out and cut into triangles.

There are many stories about the origin of the croissant including tales that the were invented to celebrate the defeat of a Muslim invasion in the middle ages and shaped in the Islamic crescent (croissant) and others that say it was to celebrate the Polish defeat of the Turks. The truth is no one really knows and most of these stories have been disproved.

Eat warm with butter of course! Or anything else you like. Bon Appétit
