I love desserts; specifically lovely French patisserie. The éclair is definitely an all-time favourite of mine and has known a revival recently. Éclair means lightening in French as the pastry was made to eat quickly.
A traditional éclair is a cylinder shaped sweet pastry with a pate á choux made with eggs and flower, filled with vanilla cream custard and coated with chocolate ganache.
So in search of the best one in Brussels, I went to 5 popular patisseries and sampled with pleasure. I took in account look, filling, topping and pate á choux.
