#AceFoodNews – Feb.20: In a twist: Tesco’s decision to stop selling curved croissants sparks debate
French chefs differ on which shape is most authentic – but they do agree that Brits eat the pastries the wrong way anyway
Tesco’s decision to straighten out its curly croissants has divided opinion among top French chefs and bakers who cannot settle on which shape is the most authentic – but one thing they can agree on is that the British have been eating them the wrong way anyway.
The supermarket chain said the move was prompted by its customers wanting to spread their butter and jam more easily, but some of France’s finest croissant connoisseurs are aghast at the thought of sullying the carefully crafted pastries with such mundane condiments.
