Pain Au Chocolat

Kit of 6

The debate rages in France over whether these should be called Chocolatines, however what is clear is they should never be described as chocolate croissants. Anyway, we don’t particularly care, we call them perfect.  You’ll receive 6 rectangles, crafted with layer after layer of butter and paper-thin dough, along with 12 chocolate batons.  Not just any batons, these are made in France by our BCorp friends at Valrhona to have a powerful chocolatey flavour plus keep their shape as you bake. 

Also includes a nifty spray bottle of glaze to give your pastries the perfect golden colour and a glossy shine. The same way the professionals do it.

Our pastry is made from

Flour, 

Flour

Farine Supérieure or Type 45. Milled from the innermost parts of the wheat berry so that the flour produced is very fine, contributing to a wonderfully elastic dough.

Butter, 

Butter

From the best butter region in the world, the Charentes-Poitou region of France. With its sunny ocean climate, mild winters, hot summers and regular rainfall, it’s as close as the cattle could get to a holiday home. Happy cows eating amazing grain produce the perfect milk to make butter with exceptional flavour.

Yeast, 

Yeast

Fresh yeast, rather than dry. We use a particularly active strain that breaks down the sugars and breathes out CO2 during proofing., These gas bubbles expand further in the oven due to the heat, pushing apart the different layers again.

Sugar, 

Sugar

In addition to providing flavor and color (favoring caramelization), sugar is part of the food for yeast.

Milk

Milk

To perfectly control the fats, we use a skim milk powder and filtered water which creates a softer, fuller flavour.

Planet Friendly
Packaging

We love our planet, and consider it in everything we do. We won’t claim to be perfect, very few people are, however we have made sure to find the most planet-friendly packaging solution for all our products. Our paper pouches are plastic-free, and everything we send you can be recycled – except the pastries.

Let the good times roll

I sent these to a friend for his birthday. The pain au chocolate was a nice surprise in the post, and he said they were delicious!

So tasty! Can’t believe I did that!

Loved the process of making the pain au chocs. Proofing really made a big difference to their size and they came out so flakey and tasty! Honestly amazing taste!
