We bet you thought the croissant originated in France but actually we can thank the Viennese for this soft and buttery pastry. So how did that happen? Well, the Ottoman Turks tried to take hold of Vienna in 1683 and were starving the citizens hoping they would surrender. However, one night, people heard the Turks digging a tunnel beneath the city with a plan to attack. They raised an alarm and an army was put together headed up by King John III of Poland and this army defeated the Turks. In celebration, Viennese bakers created a crescent shape pastry called Kipferl. The pastry was popular for many years and in 1770 Austrian Princess Marie Antoinette married King Louis XVI of France and it was renamed the croissant (crescent).
