How METRO CROISSANTS Began
I was spoiled after having the pleasure of eating croissants while vacationing in Paris. The vivid memory of having café au lait and a croissant for breakfast while sitting at a streetside café in the early morning sun always makes me smile. Once returning home, I tried to recreate those unforgettable mornings at the café, but failed miserably. The croissants available at my local grocery stores and coffee shops left much to be desired and were a poor substitute.
So, the quest began for a croissant recipe. Julia Child’s cookbook and her PBS croissant video seemed the logical place to start. I also consulted countless cookbooks at libraries. None even had a recipe! But people were blogging like crazy about their experiences making croissants at home. This is where I found the most help and insight. For an entire year, I read about making them. Of course, doing it was the only way to learn. Honestly, I was intimidated. The ingredients are simple; the technique is where the magic happens. So, in the Fall of 2012, I started practicing, making batch after batch. And throwing away batch after batch of failures.
Finally, it all came together. I was consistently producing beautiful, delicious, buttery pastries. In 2013, Metro Croissants officially became a business operating from my home kitchen. That same year, because of a request, I added vegan versions of all the pastries. These became our most popular items. By 2015, my kitchen was too small to handle the demand, so I moved into a commercial kitchen where my pastries are still made by hand. It’s hard to choose which makes me happier, making croissants or seeing the pleasure they bring my customers.
