Small Food Awards – Viennoiserie winners!

Small Food Awards – Viennoiserie winners!

Posted on 12. Dec, 2016 by in Bread and conversation

This was a tough category in the Small Food Awards.  Viennoiserie includes all the delicious things like croissants, pain au chocolat, pain aux raisins, etc. The main event is butter and the big deal about it is called "lamination."  Viennoiserie is made with "laminated dough".  Puff pastry, if you will.  The dough is made up of clear and visible layers of pastry and butter.  It's not simple to make and it's really not simple to make if you have to do it by hand.

The judges were very impressed with the entries given they were all done by hand!Small-food-awards-viennoiserie-logo WINNER
