In Search of the Perfect Kouign Amann

As I had never heard of Kouign Amann until the recent posts, I was happy to find some at
Maison Larnichol in Paris; I purchased a classic with salted caramel, an orange and Cointreau and a savoury one with seaweed.

Why this blog.....

My photo
January to March 2009. I was on Professional Development leave from my teaching Job at the Culinary Institute of Vancouver Island Universtity. I chose to take a 3 month leave to visit bakeries and teachng institutions in Australia. Thank you to VIU and my union (BCGEU) for supporting this venture. The aim of this blog was to keep an ongoing diary of my experiences and share them with my students and colleagues. This sure beats coming up with a report and slide show months later. I mean "FRESH" is what baking is all about! Learned to bake back in 1978....making granola...but that is another story. .
