The croissant is an iconic pastry beloved for its flaky, buttery layers and distinctive crescent shape. Originating from France, this delectable treat has captivated taste buds around the world. Legend has it that the croissant was inspired by the crescent moon symbol found on the Ottoman Empire's flag during the 17th century.


The first known recipe for a croissant-like pastry appeared in a Viennese handbook in 1683. However, it wasn't until the 19th century when Austrian baker August Zang brought the croissant to France, where its popularity soared. French bakers soon perfected the art of crafting the delicate layers with the utmost precision, resulting in the flaky and buttery croissant we know today.


Today, the croissant has become a staple in bakeries and cafés worldwide. Whether enjoyed plain, filled with chocolate or almond paste, or paired with a cup of coffee, this delectable pastry continues to charm with its irresistible aroma and delicate texture. From a humble Austrian origin to international fame, the croissant's mouthwatering appeal remains timeless.
