Kouign Amann.

I’ll let you figure out how to pronounce that one. In the meantime, I’ll tell you that it’s the name of the most spectacular pastry I’ve come across yet (don’t tell the pain au raisins). Kouign Amann is a specialty from Bretagne, and its name actually comes from the Breton words for “butter” and “cake.” And I think that’s pretty much all it’s made of: butter, butter, some sugar, and more butter. It’s amazing. And I just discovered that the bakery around the corner (the one with the not so good baguettes, so I never go there) sells them. Score!
