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 BoatOnce 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?
