French butter crisis for some, vegan bakers say no problem
The price of butter in France has nearly tripled in the last year and
a half, and bakers are considering raising the prices of their
pastries to compensate.
Butter is an essential ingredient for traditional French pastries: the
croissant is made of butter and flour, and it's the building block of
many cakes and deserts. So a price increase in butter hits hard.
But not everyone is concerned. Vegan bakers don’t use butter.
