Per­fect pas­try

The Guardian (Charlottetown) - - ISLAND WEEKEND -

The leg­end of the crois­sant goes back to 1683 when the Turk­ish Em­pire laid siege on Vi­enna. The Turks lost, in part be­cause the bak­ers, who worked in base­ment store­rooms, heard the sound of the army try­ing to tun­nel un­der­ground and alerted their own army. The bak­ers were hon­oured for their ef­forts, and in cel­e­bra­tion, they baked their bread in the shape of a cres­cent moon - the sym­bol of the Ot­toman Em­pire. From: www.daysoft­heyear.com/
