Choux Pastry with Tess Kelly | Paris-Brest Edition

Pâte à Choux is a light pastry dough that contains only butter, water, flour and eggs. Instead of a raising agent, it employs high moisture content to create steam during cooking which puffs the pastry into its many delicious forms including Éclairs, Cream Puffs, Profiteroles and Gougères.  In today's workshop we'll make an iconic French pastry, the Paris-Brest (which was named for the Paris-Brest-Paris bicycle race) and consists of a...
