I borrowed this image of kouign amann from my idol David Lebovitz. Since last year I’ve been reading a lot about this French pastry and I wanted to try it when I was in the US but I didn’t find it in the bakeries I went to.
Now I can try it right here in Manila in the comforts of my home. My favorite macaron supplier, Gourmet Finds, has several new French temptations in her arsenal and among them is the kouign amann, a pastry similar to croissant. Read more about kouign amann in David Lebovitz’s article.
