It’s never a nice thing to admit you are wrong, but today I was happy for this to happen. These two babies have proven that good éclairs do exist in my home state. Cue a happy dance (which will help with the calories from this yumminess).
These éclairs were a surprise find. Even though I was in a patisserie, there is never certainty that éclairs will be present. I was on a mission of another sort. And there they were. Filled with rich chocolate creme patissiere, I was momentarily transported back to France. All that was needed was the occasional waft of cigarette smoke to complete the illusion. Ah, happy days. I was even able to share details of my recent éclair hunting expedition with pastry chef and chocolatier, Jean-Pascal.
To get a bite of France, head to Jean-Pascal Patisserie in New Town.
