Making Croissants

Admittedly, I’m not proud (or intensely shameful, for that matter), of having recently watched the geriatric romcom It’s Complicated. But, there’s no way you or anyone else is going to get me to apologize for loving Meryl Streep, Steve Martin and Alec Baldwin.  They’re like the holy trinity of how to age gracefully in Hollywood.  That they still have style and sex appeal (yup, there’s something oddly fascinating about Meryl Streep) at their age is fairly remarkable.

This is all long preamble to talk about croissants.  Because Streep’s chef character makes a croissant for a stoned Steve Martin and since watching that scene, I’ve been craving a really good croissant.  And this video on how to make a croissant is not helping.  It’s pretty fascinating, and you should know by now that I am fascinated with the process of how things come about.
