- n. Plural form of viennoiserie.
Sorry, no etymologies found.
Just to explain why some places say “viennoiseries” on their sign: in France, only places where the bread is made from scratch and sold at the same place can be called “boulangerie”, the legal requirements are quite high.
Now, you will find many places that only have ovens to heat up frozen dough: you’ll find them round every corner selling croissants, pains au chocolats and other viennoiseries that are in fact industrial products.
Yep, I could, but instead I’m spending my mornings at Pierre Hermé’s pastry shop – making pâtes, viennoiseries, sablés and brioches -, and my afternoon wandering around Paris.
