Croissants in Worcester
Why is it so hard to find a decent croissant in Worcester? Outside of the markets and typical donut chains and Panera, does anyone make decent fresh croissants?
Also, any place serve dosants/cronuts? I have heard they are now this rage but have never seen nor tasted one. Someone told me they started in Southbriodge by a bakery that is now long gone.
I'm surprised that *you* are so surprised! Well, maybe you are just frustrated.....;)
It's a tall order to get decent croissants even in the Metro Boston area. Quebrada bakery in Wellesley/Arlington does a decent job making homemade ones, but that doesn't really help you. The reason "why", I guess, is that they are incredibly labor intensive to make correctly, so most bakers probably don't consider it worth the effort. This as opposed to France, where everyone expects to get croissant and so to *NOT* make them would be a death sentence for a bakery!
