THE buttery flaky viennoiserie pastry named for its well-known crescent shape. Croissants and other viennoiseries are made of a layered yeast-leavened dough. For breakfast, a snack, cold or oven-heated, with jam or ham… simply delicious…
- Pain au chocolat
Also called a chocolatine in the South of France and in French Canada, it is a sweet roll consisting of a cuboid-shaped piece of yeast-leavened laminated dough, similar in texture to a puff pastry, with one or two pieces of dark chocolate in the centre. The pain au chocolat is made of the same layered dough as a croissant. Try it still hot or warm from the oven.
- Croissant aux amandes / Almond croissant
Flaky croissant dough topped with almond filling and toasted sliced almonds : If you go to France, you’ll likely see these behind a shiny glass: “Croissants aux Amandes”. Serve them with breakfast alongside a hot latte.
- Croissant aux abricots / Apricots Croissant
Fancy breakfast ? This is just that! With sweet fruit and almond filling, the croissant is re-invented for your pleasure.. You will soon become addicted to it !
- Brioche nature ou au sucre
Brioche is a pastry of French origin that is akin to a highly enriched bread, and whose high egg and butter content give it a rich and tender crumb.It has a dark, golden, and flaky crust, frequently accentuated by an egg wash applied after proofing.
- Brioche au chocolat, orange ou praline
Brioche is made in the same basic way as bread, but has the richer aspect of a pastry because of the extra addition of eggs, butter, liquid (milk, water, cream) and occasionally a bit of sugar. We add chocolate chips, orange peels or praline rose from Lyon to our home-made brioche…
- Pain aux raisins / Raisin danish
This is one of the kids’ favourite in France. It is also colloquially known as snail bread in Australia. In France, it is typically a variant of the croissant or pain au chocolat, made with a leavened butter pastry with raisins added and shaped in a spiral with a ‘crème pâtissière‘ filling.
- Chausson aux pommes / Apple turnover
Our traditional apple turnovers are tender and flaky, with stewed-apple homemade filling. I personnally love them warm with whipped cream or a scoop of vanilla ice-cream.
- French cookies
This rich and buttery tasting cookie combines the subtle flavor of butter, brown sugar and dark chocolate chips. While perfect with a tall glass of cold milk, its soft texture makes it the perfect cookie for filling with ice cream so you have your own homemade ice cream sandwiches.
