At the Stade de France, the Bataclan, in the cafes and restaurants of Paris... on Friday 13th November, terrorists killed and wounded many innocent people. And in doing so, they also aimed also to kill these places that we love, places which represent culture and a spirit of sharing.
We at WorldEventListings share the grief of the friends and families of the victims of the terrorist attacks of 13th November 2015. And we offer our unconditional support to all the cultural venues affected.
Our raison d'être has always been to share cultural information with as many people as possible. We will continue. We will win. Their failure is only a matter of time.

Description

Sweet, buttery pastry.

Breton cuisine very often contains an ode to butter. The kouign-amann (literally "butter cake") is the perfect example: it is composed of bread dough covered with a mixture of butter and sugar, which is then folded into successive layers.

In Rennes, you will find some of the best kouign-amann in the city at the pastry shop Le Daniel. They are in the form of larger pastries for several people or in individual portions, no sharing required.

This pastry was created accidentally in 1860 by a baker in Douarnenez. At this time, the baker was short of flour but there was an abundance of butter. Hence the unusual proportions in the recipe!
