Maître Choux launches the Paris Brest éclair

Specialist patisserie Maître Choux has unveiled its newest éclair – the Paris Brest.

The éclair, which contains a crunchy nougatine filling and a layer of Maître Choux’s homemade praline cream, is available from all Maître Choux stores from this month at £5.80.

In 1910, the Paris-Brest dessert was created by a French pastry chef to commemorate the Paris-Brest-Paris bicycle race.

Over a century later, another French-born patissier, Maître Choux’s three-Michelin-star chef Joakim Prat, has created his own take on this classic.

Joakim Prat told British Baker: “The Paris-Brest is a French pastry classic, which has been delighting dessert lovers for more than 100 years. We wanted to give it a facelift and, with a few tweaks to the original recipe, we gave it a modern twist: light, balanced and crunchy. It’s our favourite at the moment.”

Maître Choux, based in South Kensington, London, claims to be the first and only choux pastry specialist patisserie in the world.
