Viennoiserie

Invented in Vienna and perfected in Paris in the mid-1800s, the art of Viennoiserie is famous all over the world, mainly thanks to the universal popularity of the croissant. Typically eaten at breakfast, but now eaten at any time of day (especially by children enjoying a treat at tea time), the term Viennoiserie covers a range of pastries and baked goods including Pain au Chocolat, Escargot Raisin, (Raisin Pastry coiled like a snail’s shell), small brioche (or Briochettes) or pastries with apple or apricot. You can order both individual Viennoiseries and sharing Platters on-line, or mix and match to arrive at the perfect selection.

History relates that the ‘pate Viennoise’ used to create croissants and other breakfast favourites was popularised in France thanks to a small bakery in Paris called Boulangerie Viennoise, opened in around 1838 by an Austrian former artillery officer called August Zang. This style of baking immediately became all the rage, so in spite of their origin in Austria, these melt-in-the-mouth morning treats are inextricably linked with France. Every PAUL bakery is filled with the irresistible aroma of freshly baked Viennoiserie in the morning. Try a PAUL croissant to understand the genius of the real thing: perfectly flaky, buttery pastry, both crispy and soft and with a glorious flavour, They are wonderful on their own, or with good quality butter and perhaps some French jam. Sweet variations include croissants flavoured with almonds or pistachio. The PAUL Pain au Chocolat features not one but two bars of delectable dark chocolate, or try the luxurious version with added almond cream and topped with flaked almonds, the Pain Chocolat aux Amandes.
