I followed the instructions like my life depended on it and on Sunday morning my wife commented that the house smelled like a french cafe. You have absolutely set the bar for my expectations for perfect croissants. Having them perfect and warm from the oven was incredible and I don't see buying a croissant in a cafe anytime soon. Pascal - you are truly a genius to make it so easy for an average homeowner to create such a perfect pastry in their own home. Next Sunday... Pain Au Chocolat!

From Classic French Croissant to Parisian Pain au Chocolat, Brioche, Chouquette, and Cinnamon Roll, they are pure bliss.
All our pastries are crafted artisanally with the best of locally and internationally sourced natural ingredients we can find: the finest flour, unsalted butter, filtered water, a sprinkle of organic cane sugar, a pinch of pure salt.
Gorgeous, authentic French pastry: layers and layers of fine, delicate, flakiness with a crisp that kisses your lips. Just like they're supposed to be.

We the pastrymakers promise you
We pledge the first ingredient we roll into our pastries is love
We put our hearts into our pastries. Perhaps that’s why when we do bake, we always seem to find heart-shaped pastry crumbs everywhere - really! It may sound a bit cliché but don’t you believe you can taste the difference love makes?
#2 CURATED INGREDIENTS
We pledge to use the finest natural local and international ingredients
Nine flours and five butters later, we strive to source the most natural and best tasting ingredients we can find so we can craft the highest quality pastries for your best possible pastry experience ever.
#3 THAT SOMETHING SPECIAL
We pledge our pastries will always possess that certain “je ne sais quoi"
Not just because Pascal is French ~ he was born and raised in Toulouse, France ~ but because pastrymaking is his passion. He has handmade over 2 million pastries in the nearly 25 years since he started at age 14. He is now solely dedicated to the pastry genre of ‘Viennoiserie’ ~ a dying art even in France.
