The Art of the Croissant 🎨

The croissant, a symbol of French food, is more than just a pastry. It’s an art form. The perfect croissant is a blend of flaky layers, a golden-brown exterior, and a soft, buttery interior. But not all croissants are created equal. Mara takes us through the streets of Paris to find the best of the best.
