Starting next Tuesday, May 14th, we will be offering caneles from La Patisserie Chouquette.
From wikipedia “A canele is a small French pastry with a soft and tender custard center and a dark, thick caramelized crust. The dessert, which is in the shape of small, striated cylinder approximately two inches in height, is a specialty of the Bordeaux region of France but can often be found in Parisian pâtisseries as well. Made from egg, sugar, milk and flour flavored with rum and vanilla, the custard batter is baked in a mold, giving the canelé a caramelized crust and custard-like inside."
For those that like their information cribbed from sources closer to home -this month’s Sauce Magazine features caneles from La Patisserie Chouquette on its cover.
