Charcoal Croissants

Charcoal Croissants

There have been a lot of black bakery items on sale recently, from sandwiches to burger buns, but this was the first time I had seen a black croissant. It stood out amongst a collection of coloured croissants at Le Patis in Bangkok, daring me to try it.

Not one to turn down a culinary challenge, I gave it a go, but if I’d had my eyes closed would not have been able to tell the difference between this and an ordinary croissant. So apart from the aesthetic appeal, I am not sure what the point is. Fun, though…
