In 1986 Take Six Cooks was the first cookery programme on tv. It featured Raymond Blanc and five other outstanding chefs.
The patisserie section especially interested Janet as it is acknowledged to be the most difficult skill to perfect.
Janet went to Michael Nadell’s bakery at The Angel, Islington and he told her that he used Anchor butter for croissants. Obviously the ingredients used in recipes affect the result. On the quest for the perfect croissant Janet has made a special study of bread that has involved trips to New York and Paris.

The making of croissants involves two intervals of ten minutes and one of fifteen minutes while the gluten relaxes and the butter firms up.

During these periods Janet will tell you some of the fascinating history of bread together with shocking details of a day course taught by Dan Lepard of The Guardian
