We had the pleasure of enjoying a late breakfast of homemade croissants fresh out of the oven.
Made by no other than my better half!
David has had a love for making bread for a couple years now. I love the smell of fresh bread baking in the oven. It has been a learning experience for David and not all bread has turned out. But of course, the baker is always his worst critic. He is a happy guy when he can serve up hot fresh bread with dinner.
I love to watch him in the kitchen--he looks happy and he truly enjoys the whole process from the leavening to the kneading to the rising. But the best part is watching that perfect loaf come out of the oven and knowing that his own hands created it.
I found this book at Williams & Sonoma and knew it would be the perfect Christmas gift for David. It is a beautiful book with gorgeous photos and step by step instructions to bake bread just like Tartine.
The photo below is what the inside of his croissants looked like this morning. This particular one has a dark chocolate center. YUM
