craving: croissants.

This morning I woke up craving croissants. again. I ate a croissant every morning on our honeymoon (even while we were in Prague!) I don't remember eating a lot of croissants when I studied in Paris during college, so I am not sure what the recent obsession is but dannnng they are tasty! Buttery, flakey - hard on the outside and soft and doughy in the middle. drool.

Now for the important question -- where do i find a decent croissant in Chicago?!

  14. I second Alex's recommendation of Floriole. They do wonderful croissants! Also, try La Fournette. It just opened by North and Wells and is run by one of my old chef instructors. He's a forth generation baker who closed up shop in France to come teach in Chicago.

  15. It's hard to find them outside of France! I'm still looking for that delicious crusty baguette made here in the US since I left Paris.
