The French Twist

_MG_1164.jpgNot the hairstyle, but in this case 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.

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.
