How to Make CROISSANTS Like a Pastry Chef

Vincenzo’s Plate

Croissants are decadent crescents of flakey, crispy, chewy goodness and in many ways, a work of art. They can be enjoyed savoury or sweet and are made with the most divine French pastry which is so thin and delicate, creating pillows of heaven when made just right! Time, patience and good technique really are key so I’ve asked for some help from professional Pastry Chef Daria Nechiporenko and in this episode of my baking series, she provides a step by step guide to mastering what can be an intimidating process…but it’s sooo worth it when the first bite of your croissant will take you so pastry heaven!
