Croissants

New Zealand School of Food & Wine

And we make our own BUTTER! This week our Level 5 Diploma students spent two days prepping for and baking croissants. From shaking cream for thirty minutes to achieve a rich butter, to proving the pastry for a minimum two hours to attain the ideal puff and flake. A very technical yet rewarding few days.
