Tomorrow, 30 January is Croissant Day 2021. Tomorrow we will tell you about the history of this humble but iconic French pastry but today it’s about where you can get your French croissant fix around Australia to celebrate the day.
By Blackbird is planning to introduce two new croissants for Croissant Day 2021:
🥐Almond croissant with marzipan
🥐vegan Raspberry croissant
They source their croissants frozen from Bridor (made in France) and delivered via Eustralis. They are then baked in the morning at By Blackbird. The croissants from Bridor that they use have been stamped with AOP which means they only use real French butter in making them.
A special offer for Croissant Day 2021 will be 3 French croissants for $9 (each normally retails for $3.50).
