Eat & Watch: Chocolate Croissants & It’s Complicated


I hold a special place in my heart for romantic comedies. Actually, two directors in particular: Nora Ephron and Nancy Meyers. I saw It’s Complicated (2009) in theaters, mainly because I love Nancy Meyers movies and Meryl Streep. And Steve Martin, obviously. There’s a scene where Meryl and Steve’s characters sneak into Meryl’s bakery late at night where she teaches him how to make chocolate croissants. The sequence is flirtatious and fun, but it also made me crave pastries. After seeing that movie, I was inspired to make chocolate croissants, but I haven’t gotten around to it until now (recipe here). I usually prefer plain croissants, but after tasting these fresh out of the oven, I am hooked. These croissants are delightful and will make you want to pack up all of your belongings and hop on the next flight to Paris so you can enjoy them every morning.
