Paris-Brest, 2009

Credit: Valéry Guedes

I didn’t invent the Paris-Brest, so I strictly maintained the core identity of this dessert: choux pastry, buttercream, and praline. However, I revisited the framework and broadened it by adding an airy texture to the cream and praline to really intensify the toasted, nutty flavor that is encased in the little puffs. It’s really the structure of its flavor that determines the style of this Paris-Brest.
