Croissant Help, Please

May 22, 2010 - 3:00pm -- spikeyspicediva

I am working on becoming proficient at croissant making in a professional kitchen.  There is a reacurring problem and I would like anyone's advice.  My croissant dough is shrinking after I cut it to shape it.  It shrinks any where from a quarter of an inch to one inch across the base.  i could list all the things I have tried to fix this problem, but I really would like to hear anything and everything you all can think of.  Thanks for your time.

Croissants - a video demonstration.

March 6, 2010 - 7:20pm -- JohnMich

Hi all! I'm new here and hope I can make a contribution. The ABC, the Australian Government owned TV (and radio) network has a new cooking show Poh's Kitchen and the first episode included a video demonstration by a very well-known French pastry chef on how to make croissants.

The video (no. 1 - the 10 February episode) should be available from the page you get when you click on  Goodluck!

Regards, John
