Plain Croissant from Makati Shangri-La | ūü¶ÜThe Bow Tie Duck Manila

Pre-ordered Freshly Baked Croissant by Makati Shangri-La

Buttery and Flaky

Made of lay¬≠ered yeast-leav¬≠ened dough and a hand¬≠ful of but¬≠ter, fold¬≠ed sev¬≠er¬≠al times in suc¬≠ces¬≠sion and rolled into a thin sheet. We admit, the process of mak¬≠ing crois¬≠sant is so com¬≠pli¬≠cat¬≠ed, we‚Äôd rather just leave this to the bak¬≠ery mae¬≠stros at Makati Shangri-La. Assured you get that flaky, crisp and soft crois¬≠sant adored by many. Only avail¬≠able for Sat¬≠ur¬≠day deliv¬≠er¬≠ies in box¬≠es of 4pcs.

Tast­ing Notes from the Curator

Many believe the crois¬≠sant is a quin¬≠tes¬≠sen¬≠tial¬≠ly French pas¬≠try but it is rather a prod¬≠uct of Vien¬≠na, Aus¬≠tria, thus falling under the vien¬≠nois¬≠eries cat¬≠e¬≠go¬≠ry. By def¬≠i¬≠n¬≠i¬≠tion, vien¬≠nois¬≠eries are baked goods made from a yeast-leav¬≠ened dough in a man¬≠ner sim¬≠i¬≠lar to bread, or from puff pas¬≠try, but with added ingre¬≠di¬≠ents (par¬≠tic¬≠u¬≠lar¬≠ly eggs, but¬≠ter, milk, cream and sug¬≠ar) giv¬≠ing them a rich¬≠er, sweet¬≠er char¬≠ac¬≠ter, approach¬≠ing that of pas¬≠try. The painstak¬≠ing process of ‚Äč‚Äúlam¬≠i¬≠nat¬≠ing‚ÄĚ but¬≠ter and dough togeth¬≠er in a thin sheet is what gives a crois¬≠sant its dis¬≠inct soft,puffy inside and lay¬≠ered, crisp outside.


A crossiant is best enjoyed as it is. Indulge into those lay¬≠ers of but¬≠ter. It‚Äôs okay if the flaky tex¬≠ture falls off, cre¬≠at¬≠ing a bit of a mess. You know its a good crois¬≠sant when you encounter this. 

Enjoy along¬≠side your cup of espres¬≠so cof¬≠fee or hot choco¬≠late, the lat¬≠ter being asso¬≠ci¬≠at¬≠ed to a very French child¬≠hood tra¬≠di¬≠tion of dip¬≠ping crois¬≠sant in won¬≠der¬≠ful warm hot chocolate. 

Made With Love by Makati Shangri-la

Enjoy the bak¬≠ery prod¬≠ucts, made with utmost care and com¬≠mit¬≠ment to qual¬≠i¬≠ty by Makati Shangri-La Hotel, a lux¬≠u¬≠ry 5‚ÄĎstar hotel in the heart of Makati. Made by hand on the morn¬≠ing of Sat¬≠ur¬≠day, deliv¬≠ered to you fresh on the same day by the care¬≠ful team of The Bow Tie Duck. 

Storage Instructions

Baked fresh on Sat¬≠ur¬≠day morn¬≠ings at Makati Shangri-La. Best con¬≠sumed upon arrival, but you can store it at room tem¬≠per¬≠a¬≠ture for up to two days in their orig¬≠i¬≠nal pack¬≠ag¬≠ing. For stor¬≠age up to a week, wrap them in parch¬≠ment paper or plas¬≠tic wrap and refrig¬≠er¬≠ate. Alter¬≠na¬≠tive¬≠ly, you can freeze your parch¬≠ment-wrapped vien¬≠nois¬≠erie in a ziplock bag for up to two weeks.

Bake for 5‚ÄČ‚Äď‚ÄČ10 min¬≠utes (depend¬≠ing on your oven) then allow to cool to desired tem¬≠per¬≠a¬≠ture. The same process applies to frozen vien¬≠nois¬≠erie. Just thaw them overnight first!
