Croissant baking class!

We had our one booked event of the holiday today, a croissant baking class at La Cuisine. Same people that taught us to make macarons last time. A very good time was had by both of us, and we got a lovely result.

Did you know, in France, a STRAIGHT croissant is a butter one, and a CURVED one is an "ordinaire", made with margarine! The French government makes rules like that, to preserve key aspects of French culture. These ones are straight. I can tell you, there's a lot of butter.
