As you enjoy your warm, flaky, buttery croissant with your coffee this morning, are you aware of how long this delicious pastry has been around? The kipferl, or crescent-shaped bread, originated in 13th century Austria, and then spread to France. By the mid-1800s, the French developed their own version of this tasty bread, and dubbed it the croissant.
Making croissants from scratch requires dedication, patience, and high-quality ingredients. The process of making the dough is called “lamination,” which consists of making a yeast-leavened dough and layering it with butter. The dough is then rolled and folded many times in order to create alternating layers of dough and butter. Once the croissant dough is rolled into its crescent shape and placed in the oven, all the layers of butter release steam as they melt into the dough, creating the lovely airy center and crunchy exterior that we all know and love.
Today on National Croissant Day, treat your employees and customers to a platter of croissants from your local bakery. Don’t forget to grab your American-made Cutlery bread knife to cut them up for sharing!

A dinner party wouldn’t be complete without a few appetizers laying around for your guests to nibble on. Your easiest bet is to put together a diverse, yummy cheese board that will not only satisfy everyone’s taste buds, but will also give you more time to socialize with your friends, instead of keeping you in the kitchen.
Stumped about what to include on your cheese board? Here are some quick tips:
Have a variety of soft & hard cheeses
Include goat’s, sheep’s, and cow’s milk cheeses
Lay out a few American-made Cutlery cheese knives that you can use with any variety of cheese. No one will wonder “which cheese knife do I use for which cheese?”
Arrange slices of a yummy baguette on the side
Add a few more accoutrements such as fresh or dried fruits, quince paste, nuts, cured meats, olives, etc.
It’s no surprise that when I told my kids that this week is National Pizza Week, they jumped up and down with joy! One of my family’s go-to meals is definitely pizza: everyone likes it, it’s easy to customize, and it’s fast to make (or order!).
Overindulgence is usually the path we all take during these holiday months. Today is no exception, as today is Pumpkin Pie Day. Might as well add a dollop of ice cream on top of your slice too, why not? You deserve it.
