French Fridays with Dorie: Vanilla éclairs on Saturday

I was SO excited to see this week’s French Fridays with Dorie recipe: Vanilla éclairs (p. 473).

I hear you asking about the name of this week’s French Fridays with Dorie recipe (Paris-Brest, p 475).  Basically, it’s a large choux-pastry ring, filled with crème pâtissière, created in 1891 to commemorate the Paris–Brest bicycle race.

Bobo Palate: New Trends in Parisian Cuisine (A Context Paris walking tour of the upper Marais)

When I was planning this year’s trip to Paris, I was kind of overwhelmed with how MUCH I wanted to do/ see/ eat. Paris kind of does that to you. One way of managing one’s desires to do/ see/ eat everything is to take a gourmand walking tour, such as those offered (amongst others) by […]
