National Croissant Day
It’s National Croissant Day, hold your horses fellas!!! There is some history behind this tasty pastry. The story of the croissant begins in Austria in the 1400s, with the kipfel, a crescent-shaped pastry. Made with light bread-like dough, it was denser and less flaky than the croissant we know today. The exact history of the kipfel is hazy: the word was used in Austrian food as far back as the thirteenth century, referring to crescent-shaped sweets, but it does not refer specifically to the Viennese breakfast (sweet, dough-based dessert food) until the fifteenth century. A dessert called gateaux en croissants appeared at a Parisian fancy meal for Catherine de' Medici in 1549; however, that word likely referred to crescent-shaped cakes and sweet, baked foods, not the (sweet, dough-based dessert food) we know today.
Here’s Bruno making a croissant!
