Pate A Choux, Eclairs, Creme Patissiere

 Chef's Pate A Choux


In addition to the fruit tart, these coffee eclairs will also be tested on assessment day. Knowing this made the lesson somewhat less enjoyable and a great source of stress.

I was quite glad to be given a second shot at choux, as they deflated after it was sliced open yesterday, so I was hoping today would be an improvement. My Coffee Love Boat
Once again for reasons beyond me, these tricksy pastry cases came out pretty flat, which made slicing and filling them a vexing affair. I take comfort in my Cream Patissiere and the execution of my piping, you can't fault a girl for trying, can you?
