Hans, I don't know why you say your croissants don't look great... they look great to me!  Congratulations on your success!

And thanks again for that amazing blog of yours :-)

One thing that I noticed while doing the three turns and the succeeding folds, was that getting the butter uniformly distributed inside the dough was tricky. I think I managed to get it fairly well spread out inside the layers, but I think that if I try with a slightly warmer, more flexible butter next time, they'll end up better. Thanks again!

Looking very good from where i'm sitting...very nice job.  Pass those croissants this way please, and another cafe au lait.

Hans,  Love your story about the Pig along with all the pictures.  

But I can't seem to locate any pics of your croissants but I will keep looking in hopes of finding their story.  

I'm not sure it will be as fascinating as the Pork though!
