On a recent trip to Nice I checked one item off of my travel bucket list, a French pastry class.

My class was hands on and I came away with a recipe for Pate a Choux Dough and a box of Hazelnut Paris-Brest that I had made. Paris-Brest was created in 1910 to commemorate the Paris–Brest–Paris bicycle race begun in 1891. It consists of Pate a Choux Dough baked in the shape of a ring and filled with a pastry cream. In my class we filled them with Hazelnut cream filling.

Having thoroughly enjoyed my class I have filled out my entry in hopes of winning a five day French Culinary Course in Paris or Provence.
