The croissant is one of life’s simple pleasures, and the French love them so much that the croissant has its own national celebration day, National Croissant Day.


The history of the croissant


Austrian queen Marie Antoinette introduced the croissant to France in 1770 before the French Revolution when she lived at Versailles. Do you think she would believe we still enjoy them as much today as she did all those years ago!


Should croissants be straight or curved?

You may be surprised to know that there is a significant difference between curved and straight croissants. The curved croissant is made using margarine, and the straight croissant is made with butter. The buttery croissant is usually the preferred option as French butter is so delicious.
