The Paris Brest is a classic French pastry that was created in 1901 for the Paris-Brest-Paris bicycle race. Since then it’s become an iconic pastry. A lot of pastry chefs have created their own version to reflect their city, and I felt like it was time for me to create my own!
I did a little poll on Instagram to find out what people thought was the most iconic kiwi flavour or treat, and hokey pokey was the clear winner! Which is great because that’s what I was hoping for! And so the Paris-New Zealand was created, to highlight the flavours of honey and hokey pokey.
An airy choux pastry holds a caramelised honey cremeux, honey vanilla creme fraiche, hokey pokey pieces and a sharp passionfruit gel, of course arranged in the classical round Paris Brest shape.
