Tips for cooking… and for enjoying

The procedure to make our Viennese pastries is very simple and natural: It simply involves leaving the Viennese pastries in your oven for 8 to 12 hours with the doors closed so that they can rise due to their natural yeast, before baking them for 20 to 25 minutes at 200°C (thermostat 7) in a traditional oven or at 180°C (thermostat 6) in a convection oven. For a glaze like at the baker’s, you can brush them with an egg yolk before putting in the oven. You can also brush them with icing sugar mixed with some water after removing them from the oven. Success guaranteed! Then, you are free to enjoy them as you like…

Did you know?

According to legend, the croissants were created in Vienna during the siege of the city in 1683 by the Ottomans. The shape of the croissant comes from the symbol on the Ottoman flag and the name, undoubtedly from the Viennese bakers who distinguished themselves during that period.  Introduced in France by Queen Marie-Antoinette who was born in Austria, the croissant became popular from 1920. Today, it is an indispensable part of the French breakfast, along with its little cousin, the pain au chocolat.

In packets of 12, 15 or even 35 and 40, Gourmet d’Alsace offers you these delectable raw frozen croissants and pains au chocolat. And here you are – you are (almost) a baker!
