What is National Croissant Day?
In the United States, National Croissant Day is celebrated every year on January 30th. Croissants are buttery bread rolls that are crispy on the outside and soft on the inside.
The key to making a perfect croissant is through laminating the dough. Laminating the dough is a process by which butter is folded into the dough which creates multiple layers of butter and the bread base. And once it is baked, it is a mouth-watering flaky crust and airy body. What is known, is that crescent-shaped bread has been found around the world for so long now. One of these was the Kipferl, the original name for the croissant, which originated in Austria as far back as the 13th century.
Credits to an Austrian military officer, August Zang, for introducing us to the croissant we know today. He opened a Viennese bakery located in Paris, France in the year 1939 introducing France to Viennese baking techniques.
How to Celebrate National Croissant Day?
