History of the Paris-Brest Pastry
 
Did you know…
The Paris-Brest is a crown-shaped cake made of choux pastry, filled with praline cream and sprinkled with flaked almonds. It was created in 1891 by a baker whose shop was on the route of the bicycle race between the cities of Paris and Brest. As such, the baker dreamt up the idea of creating a circular eclair reminiscent of the wheels of a bicycle. 
 
You can taste it in this shape (see the picture) at Le Mesturet exclusively!
