There are many stories about the creation of the French 'croissant'; the word means 'crescent'. The following is just one of them.

The croissant is about three hundred years old. It was invented by a French Chef employed by the Emperor of Austria when the Ottoman Empire (Turkey) attacked Vienna (capital of Austria) in 1683.

The Ottoman's Muslin symbol was a crescent, hence, when Austrian Christians defeated the Turks, a special pastry in the shape of a crescent was created to celebrate the date.

Serve croissants as part of your 'Bastille Day Party'! Savoury or sweet they are delicious. Warm croissants for a few minutes in moderate oven and serve with:

  1. Ham and cheese
  2. Jam
  3. Nutella
  4. Honey
  5. Peanut butter
  6. Garlic Butter
  7. Tomato Relish
