Paris Brest - Know it all!

Today we will tell you how the Paris Brest cake, that giant of French Pastry, was born.

Although it was initially made in the shape of a laurel wreath, it does not recall that shape, the story.

In 1910, in honour of a bicycle race between Paris-Brest-Paris, it was created by Louis Durand, Maison Laffitte's pastry chef, the famous cake inspired by a bicycle wheel.

The Paris Brest cake, although French, has become internationalized and is as successful today as its original.

This real delight, has in its composition Pâte-à-Choux with Cream Praliné (Chocolate with Hazelnut).

Do you also want a drink suggestion? ... Okay, here it is:

  • If you are with your "soul mate," accompany it with a cool flute of champagne;
    this is because this cake is warm and summer demands it;
  • If you prefer something less alcoholic, we suggest one of the cold teas
    from our magnificent personalized selection.
  • Or, why not, a Natural Juice of the day!

"Et bon appétit"

Paris Brest - Brief prayer of the "gato" (cat)

PRAYER of the "GATO"

A brief prayer from Leila Gato (thank you dear customer), which like her, we share with all of you.

Repeat with "Gato":
"Paris Brest" our that you are in the window of Dacquoise, hallowed be your name.
Let our plate come to us, both at the table and at the counter.
Give us our daily cake today.
Forgive our caloric excesses as we forgive those who do not like to eat.
And let us fall into temptation but deliver us from excess weight.

// Amen //
Leila Gato
