The Saint Honoré is one of the most famous French pastries.
You can find it in any pâtisserie in France. It is made with pâte a choux and chantilly, just like its close cousins the éclairs, the profiteroles and the choux à la crème…
It is usually made with caramel, but Lorraine has chosen to tweak it with Strawberry flavor…
Lorraine is one of the top 5 food bloggers in Sydney. I really wanted her to share her best recipe on Food is all for two reasons:
1. Firstly, her blog, Not Quite Nigella is incredibly successful! It is reaching 350,000 unique readers a month and over 800,000 page views a month. This is partly due to the fact that she has been blogging for 8 years and full time blogging for 6 years! She is entirely dedicated to her passion for food and I admire that…
2. The second reason and probably the main one is that Lorraine is a big fan of the French cuisine, Paris, Ladurée, Pierre Hermé, the macarons and all fine French pastries.
This Strawberry Saint Honoré recipe she is sharing today was adapted from the chef Adriano Zumbo and she created it after a trip to Paris.
As a Frenchwoman , I can tell you the result is rather spectacular and very similar to the real Saint Honoré pastries you can find in the pâtisseries in France. So well done Lorraine and thank you for sharing your baking secrets with us on Food is all.
What is your cooking tip for this recipe?
If you have never made pastry before, choux is a great one to start with as it is so easy. Also whipped cream, icing and fruit can hide any imperfections 😉
