The French Twist

_MG_1164.jpgNot the hairstyle, but in this case, our description of the way that a pâtisserie or boulangerie will twist the ends of the small bag that contains another French twist, the croissant. A fresh croissant is a buttery, flaky pastry, light and airy and so good with local confiture de fraises or strawberry jam. Of course, they are so flaky and light that crispy bits will end up all over the table and/or your lap. I have never actually seen how the bakery person twists the corners of the open end of the bag but they are like two ears that lightly seal the slightly warm clouds of pastry within._MG_1167.jpg



… and then they are gone!
