Choosing a good butter for the turns is essential for making good croissants. It is the butter that determines their development, making them flaky and crisp.

Charentes-Poitou butter PDO, Lescure meets strict specifications, both in terms of where the milk comes from as well as how the butter is made.

Each step, from collecting the milk to churning the cream, including the selection of lactic ferments and how long the cream is allowed to ripen, is closely supervised in order to develop maximum flavour.

That is why the resulting butter is exceptional, with an unrivalled flavour of hazelnuts and a firm yet supple texture that ensures uniformity when giving the pastry dough its turns.
