Awesome Croissants is my little corner of the internet. It’s mine.

I’m the voice, author, and creator behind Awesome Croissants. Ask me (literally) anything about croissants.

Amelia Warren says the croissant was invented in Romania, but it wasn’t – it originates from Vienna, Austria, where bakers designed the new bread after the Austrian-Hungarian army had defeated the Turks. Hence the shape of the croissant: it is moon-shaped, the moon being one of the symbols in the Turkish flag.
