Fact of the Day: Croissant

While croissants are typically believed to be a French invention, they originated as an Austrian twist on a pastry from Eastern Europe.

  2. Well done Adam.
    The Original Austrian version was called a kepferi.
    The French gave it the Croissant name.
    I think to avoid a diplomatic incident we can assume it is
    a Viennese pastry improved on by the French!
    The best bread in the World is the French bread - no ifs or buts
    on that. Pastries - well that can be shared between - Belgium, Austria,
    France and Switzerland - delightful to look at, far better to eat.

    Don't even think that the Fast Food outlets which plague the World
    these days can get anywhere near the quality of a French croissant.
    Cheers

  4. Interesting, I wonder why it's always associated with the French. I'm going to have a chocolate croissant tonight and I can't wait.

  5. My wife can't get enough of these when we're in Europe, but I don't like things that crumble when I try to eat them. So much butter in them.
