Pan au amande
Pain au chocolat
Thursday, October 11, 2007
As soon as we finished dinner, I quickly cut the cake, took photo of the wicked cross-section 'pose' and attacked the gateau with Princess. EVERY mouthful sent us to seventh heaven. Such a dainty and complex creation with layers of almond genoise sponge, milk chocolate mousse and dark chocolate mousse covered in glossy chocolate coating and decorated with chocolate squares at the side and chocolate macarons & chocolate curl on top. The sweetness is within acceptable level, less sweet compared to Canele's gateau.
Chouquette will be sorely missed when I leave Brisbane one day *sob*sob*

Chouquette by Chouquette
These quaint sugar crystal dipped choux pastry are a real treat. Princess especially love these. The patisserie had named itself after these sugary treat so they must be better than good.
While the shopfront does not reveal much (because of the easily missed shop sign and reflective glass windows), upon entering the shop, you'll be greeted with cabinets filled with petits four, tarts, gateaus, croissants and a cupboard of bread on one side of the wall. Variety is limited but all french patisserie classics are all there.
More posts to come on Chouquette!
