Though the widely-loved croissants are often associated with the French, its actual origin can be traced back to Austria, where this buttery, flaky pastry came into existence back in the 13th century.
The kipferl or kifli, a crescent-shaped bread roll, is known as the ancestor of the croissant and on this year’s Croissant Day, JW Marriott Kolkata is bringing taste of delectable croissants, delicately crafted with much finesse, for guests to indulge in.
