Mille-Feuille

Today, I tried the French dessert “Mille-Feuille” for the very first time. The heart shaped, raspberry version was too hard to resist from Yann Haute Patisserie. 

  
Mille-feuille are layers of puff pastry (normally around 3 layers) with vanilla pastry cream in between each layer.

Since I’ve not tried any other mille-feuille before, I can’t really compare and comment as much.  This particular one was not an easy one to eat. The puff pastry was slightly crunchy and difficult to cut with a fork. So it was best to eat with fingers 🙂 The pastry cream was really delicious and light. The raspberries were a tad bit sour (but that’s what you expect during the off-season!). The puff pastry, sweet but a little salty.

In general, I love pastry cream (rather than whipped cream) and raspberries, so this was well worth the try!
