New Breads/Pastries from Jean-Yves Charon

    If you haven't had the privilege of tasting the croissants on Oprah's favorite list,you are missing out on one of life's greatest pleasures.Now Jean-Yves Charon,creator of all things delicious,(including my favorite triple chocolate mousse cakes),has introduced his new fall lineup of goodies and my mouth is already watering!Delicious  breads such as brioche,and Parker House Rolls.Savory croissants filled with feta and spinach,or a ricotta bechamel.Also available is a french treat known as Kouign Amann, made of layers of puff pastry with a carmelized sugary topping.

   All of these arrive frozen,and the part I like best is that YOU let them rise and bake them,so they are warm,fresh and delicious every time!After seeing these,I cannot wait to see what he has in store for the holidays!All of these items can be found at .
