Today we made 4 types of croissants
- Plain croissants
- Pains au chocolates (Chocolate croissants)
- Almond criossants
- Savoury croissants - ham & cheese
Croissants are traditional French buttery flaky pastry but originate from Vienna, Austria...It is made of a slightly sweet yeast dough where butter is rolled into the dough similar to Danish Pastry.Plain croissants dough and Pains au chocolates dough prepared by chef Michael.
Chef Michael made us the special almond croissants using the frangipane for the filling instead of mazipan. So yummy.....I had 1 and a half of this...
Ham & Cheese croissants....we had 1 of each...ahh..Ja couldn't stop eating...
My croissant dough with egg wash...really like it...so cute ^ ^
Pains au chocolates...you can see some of them doesn't look flaky on top..Chef Michael told that because the lamination was not good enough.
My ham and cheese croissant turned out perfectly..hehe...so nice but a bit more tiny than others..cuz we measured the length of the dough, chef Michael tought us to use our hand...and I forgot that my hand is small T_T
I made about 40 croissants today...gave to friends at school about 15 croissants, 8 to the kitchen hand ladies, and the rest brought back home...So lucky that Bank's friends came (my housemate) at nite...In the morning when I woke up..I saw only 2 croissants left....so happy ^ ^
