Mr. Gontran Cherrier’s croissants are a treat for the senses even before you devour them. Its many golden brown layers rise and fold in sensual, intricate swirls, almost like modern architecture. The buttery scent greets you next- warm, comforting, reminiscent of rainy days, plushy sofas, and a steaming cup of café au lait. When you finally bite into it, the pastry, crunchier than most, has a certain je ne sais quoi compared to other croissants I have found. Magnifique!
