30 January is National Croissant Day and at AccorHotels, we take the national pastry of France very, very seriously. Whether eaten as breakfast, lunch, dinner, or dessert, a croissant is one carb that we are willing to stop counting calories for. So, let’s go on a journey to discover the different types.
The classic. Flaky and buttery, the stellar croissant should have a beautiful cross-section with a honeycomb interior when sliced in half.
Best eaten plain with a cup of coffee and tea.
The chocolate variant. Our personal favourite comes with chunks of dark chocolate.
Best eaten hot.
Nutty, sweet and with a dash of powdered sugar, the almond croissant is the perfect combination of sweet and savory.
Best enjoyed with a cup of latte.
If you fancy having some protein and fibre with your carbs, stuffing some ham and cheese into your croissant is always a good idea.
Throw in a salad to up your vegetable quota.
Don’t knock it till you’ve tried this! Food trends come and go, but one trend is pretty much here to stay in Asia, and that is the salted egg yolk.
Both sweet and savoury, the salted egg yolk has found its way into every kind of ingredient possible and that also includes the iconic croissant. And did we mention that it also looks really good on the ‘gram?
