So it would appear that the beloved croissant has come under fire in Syria...
Go to the article here
a sharia committee overseeing a rebel-held area of Aleppo thinks otherwise. The judicial committee, Hayaa al-Sharia, banned Syrians from consuming the
flaky pastries earlier this week. The committee isn’t taking a page out of New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg’s book and banning croissants for
their impressive calorie count, however — the committee announced that the moon-shaped pastry “celebrates European victory over Muslims,” Al
Arabiya reported. Syria was a French colony until the mid-twentieth century. The fatwa against croissants, which aren’t likely to be abundant in
the war-torn city anyway, is part of a growing trend of extremism in rebel groups.
I understand that this may be a serious subject to some.... but in my eyes... it made me chuckle. lol
What are your thoughts on this question of ethical pastry banning??
I do love myself a good croissant... smothered in butter , jam , choco hazelnut , spread to name but a few
Your opinions and tasty pastry recipes are greatly looked forward to!!
