If you're in Paris today or tomorrow, stop by for pastry demonstrations and a selection of modern twists on the classic pastry with savory flavors like foie gras or salmon and peas and sweet versions including classic mocha or a new chocolate/almond combo. Decorated with gold leaf and camouflage, showered with coconut flakes, or painted like a da Vinci, they're more tarted up than your average éclair, and cost 5 euros for the pleasure.
If you're not in Paris, check out our recipe for D.I.Y. pastry cream and try making some yourself!
