Few bakeries around the world make better pastries than Ladurée, which has locations throughout the U.S. and many other countries. It makes sense then that Ladurée would have a pastry named after Saint Honoré, the patron saint of bakers and pastry chefs.
The Feast Day of Saint Honoré was recently celebrated on May 16, so this month is a perfect time to share the Ladurée Saint Honoré Rose, a flaky pastry topped with a light rose petal custard and fresh raspberries that looks as good as it tastes.
This decadent pastry is made in layers. First is a crisp puff pastry base, then a small pyramid of tiny cream puffs are placed atop the pastry base. The spaces between the tiny puff pastries are filled with chiboust cream and a peak of freshly made whipped cream is piped on top.
Those lucky enough to live in or visit New York, Los Angeles, Miami, or Washington, D.C. can have the opportunity to enjoy one of these amazing treats.
