BREADS, VIENNOISERIES & PASTRIES

Hello everyone!

Welcome to Toast my French, my name is Morgane and I am a certified French teacher.

Today we are going to learn how to pronounce the names of pastries, breads and viennoiseries in French.

The names of the bakery

First of all, you should know that even if in some languages ​​the word “pain” (bread) is used to refer to all these names, in French there are several categories!

In a “boulangerie”(bakery), you will find “pains” (breads) and “viennoiseries” (pastries).

The breads are made from a mixture of water, salt, flour and yeast.

They accompany all meals of the day!

The viennoiseries are made with fatter and sweeter ingredients such as milk, eggs, sugar

We often eat pastries, such as croissants, for breakfast or goûter (afternoon tea) (around 4 in the afternoon).

In a “pâtisserie” (pastry shop), you will find pastries, which include cakes and sweet cookies.

Pastries are mostly eaten for dessert, but sometimes also for goûter (afternoon tea)!
