There are a few “National Days” that require little introduction, and this is one of them! Butter, Chocolate, Almond, Cheese – we’ve never met a croissant we didn’t love (or finish in it’s entirety)!
Honestly this day just makes us want to shout “Oui!” while wearing a beret and riding bicyclettes past the Eiffel Tower! Sigh… to be a true Parisian!
OK, so unfortunately we aren’t in Paris, heck we don’t even own berets …and quite honestly it’s been awhile since either of us has rode a bicyclette! BUT… today is a day of celebration! Obviously, there are some circumstances in which a croissant could potentially be seen as more enjoyable (see above scenario)! However, in our opinion as long as it meets the following criteria – satisfaction is pretty much guaranteed:
1) still warm
2) deliciously flakey
3) slightly buttery
4) paired with champagne!
5) enjoyed with friends!
We decided to celebrate National Croissant Day with some fresh fruit, freshly baked croissants from a local bakery – dusted with icing sugar and nutella – and obviously paired with mimosas! What is better than a delicious brunch with your best people?!
One thing worth commending is how versatile croissants really are! No matter what your tastes are there is something out there for you! Whether your palette is sweet or savoury one of these recipes ought to get your mouth watering! We would love to hear how you chose to celebrate this glorious day… let us know in the comments below or tag us in your pictures! Bon Appétit!
