Dalloyau, maison de gastronomie is a beautiful pastry chain in Paris. The day Maileen and I went they were giving out delicious samples of Croquembouche which are profiteroles or creme puffs dipped in caramelized sugar arranged into a large cone. They are kind of like the cone things (parupu thengai) you see at South Indian weddings. According to wikipedia, croquembouche means "a crunch in the mouth."
The chef was making them right in front of us. It was fantastic! The taste was out of this world. The warm sugar, crisp pastry shell and smooth cream inside complemented each other very well. I love the copper pot being used to melt the sugar!
