My workmate RR recently bought selection of goodies from Chez Jean Claude Patisserie for afternoon tea to celebrate his birthday.
I sneaked in ahead of time to take photos, of course. I lifted the lid from the box, and wow! Even after half a dozen or so morning/afternoon teas featuring Jean Claude fare, I still get excited when I see the bright and shiny colourful little mini pastries.
I think this one is called a snail.
The ever-beautiful custard-filled, chocolate-lined fruit tartlette.
A danish, topped with juicy red berries.
Lemon meringue tartlettes.
A plump, sugary jam-filled donut.
A chocolate eclair.
We cut everything in half 1) which gave the illusion you were eating less and 2) allowed you to try a couple of different items (I did say “illusion”, as we certainly didn’t “eat less”!). I had half a custard donut to begin with. The custard was creamy, the donut soft and chewy.
I also had half a jam donut. It was very sweet!
