Gorgonzola croissant

  • Boil the water, add the black rice flour and cook for a few minutes as you would if you were making choux pastry, to allow the starch to gelatinise.
  • Leave to cool on a Silpat baking mat, then mix together with the flour in a stand mixer until smooth.
  • Add the remaining ingredients and knead.
  • Stretch and fold the dough for 13-14 minutes, spread on a baking sheet and chill overnight at 0°C.
  • The next day, roll out the dough, making a book fold and a letter fold, then leave to rest for 20 minutes at 4 °C.
  • Roll out to a thickness of 2.8 mm.
  • Cut the dough into the characteristic triangles (26 cm x 11 cm) and roll up, brush with beaten egg and leave to rise for about 2 hours at 27°C, RH 75%.
  • Brush again with egg, sprinkle with pepper and bake.
  • Bake at 175°C-180°C for 19 minutes.
