You’ll Have a Crush on Croquet
What a beauty. What a delicious scent. Mmmmm… good enough to eat! Are we describing your new next-door neighbour? Nope. We’re talking about a completely different delicacy. We’re talking about Alex Croquet’s fabulous bread! Don’t be disappointed, though, because his baked goods will be sure to give you a warm, fuzzy feeling. Close your eyes and imagine a fabulously warm, round bread. Now smell the subtle flavors. As your fingers press down, you hear the familiar crunch of the perfectly golden crust. The dough inside has been cooked to perfection, with just the soft texture you love. You slowly break a piece off, bring it to your mouth, and….suddenly you have a revelation. What texture! What a flavour! And now you know why Alex Croquet is considered one of the best bakers in the world by award-winning chefs internationally. Not a single chemical additive is used: only pure yeast made by the master of breads himself, and nothing less than purified and dynamised water. In addition, Alex takes his time through the entire baking process, since good dough can never be rushed. So much attention, so much finesse…wouldn’t you love to be a fly on the wall next time he bakes up a batch?
