Bonjour French Cuisine!!!

Aaah the french and their wonderful pastries!!!!  Don't you just adore their Eclairs, Croque en Bouche, Croissants and Pain au Chocolat? I know I do!!!!

There are of course many other kinds but these are the ones that come to mind when I think of french pastries.

Just this morning I had a wonderful Pain au Chocolat from a local patisserie which I believe is the best one here yet.

I do have experience in making Eclairs and Cream Puffs , which are used in the Croque en Bouche (take a look at my Caramel Cream Puffs recipe, they're delightful!) for quite some time but I have never mustered the courage to try out the Croissants or Pain au Chocolat. It is definitely a labor of love and very intensive.

There are hundreds of recipes online for any one of these pastries. If you have managed to create one or more of these exquisite works of culinary art I would love to hear about it. Do you have a favorite? Which is the best recipe you have tried? Have you ever tried and failed? Any and all experiences all welcome!

I will, one day soon, take out the time to bake some of these and will surely let you know how it goes!

Au revoir!!!


  1. Please share! Where is this great patisserie? I'd love to try it!

  2. Hi Jelli Bean! This place is in Escazu, across from Paco or La Paco, it's called Chez Christophe. If you haven't tried it I urge you to go take a look, it's wonderful! On Sundays they have french toast and I heard they are the best! I haven't been able to make it on a Sunday but if you go, please try them and let me know!
