Croissants is a Side Dish in Cook, Serve, Delicious! 2!!. It was added in the Barista Update.

Description[edit | edit source]

The creation of the croissant has been traced back to 1839, when Austrian artillery officer, August Zang, opened a bakery in Paris where he sold many Austrian treats, including the crescent-shaped yeast roll known as the Kipferl. Unbeknownst to Zang, several Parisians took offense to the idea of an Austrian developing an iconic pastry and set to work developing their own imitations.

One French baker, Sébastienne Étiennette Patenaude, was particularly inspired by the shape of the Kipferl, but felt that the consistency and flavor was lacking in a certain Je ne sais quoi. After toying around with different methods, Patenaude finally took some butter-layered yeast-leavened dough, rolled and folded it several times in succession, then laminated it into a sheet. This resulted in a pastry with a layered, flaky texture, which she called a "croissant" after its crescent shape. Patenaude began selling croissants in her own bakery, but kept the recipe a closely-guarded secret.

When confronted by Zang, who claimed that Patenaude had stolen the idea from his bakery, Patenaude pointed out that there were no laws against imitation, and that it was, in fact, the highest form of flattery. Zang then spent the next eight years scheming to steal the recipe for croissants. Finally, in 1848, Zang launched an elaborate 11-man heist to steal the recipe. He then began mass producing croissants and selling them at his bakery. When Patenaude confronted him about this, he explained that there were no laws against imitation, and that it was, in fact, the highest form of flattery.

Now both equally flattered, August Zang and Sébastienne Étiennette Patenaude were married later that week under a crescent-shaped moon.
