Croissant Masters!

You may remember my goal to encourage folks to make croissants at home for the first time. What an amazing experience it’s been! As I mentioned before, making croissants was one of my proudest kitchen moments. Well, hearing about others making croissants for the first time because of my post is without a doubt one of my proudest blogging moments.

Seventeen crazy croissanters came, they saw, they baked. And now it’s time to show the first batch of them off. Introducing . . . the first 5 croissant masters!

Hannah: “People demanded that I should try other challenges and I promised to do so if you do another one, since all the tricks etc. you posted helped a lot. I guess otherwise I wouldn’t have thought that I could manage baking them.”

Amy: “I did enough folding to qualify for a management position at the Gap.”

Kat: “The trick is to use the fridge as a lifeboat. Every time something seems to be heading south, throw it all in the fridge.”

[see more of Kat’s croissants here.]

Emily: “I mean, I made these croissants. From scratch. All by myself. That is an accomplishment…”

[see more of Emily’s croissants here.]

Kirsten: “I’ll definitely be making croissants of some sort again…”

If all of these beautiful croissants produced by bakers just like you — some with experience, some without — make you want to join in the fun, please let me know so I can add you to my list of folks committed to croissant! Stay tuned for the rest of the croissant masters.
