Let’s Talk Profiteroles

We have noticed a proliferation of profiteroles on menus as of late, and for good reason since they are super easy to make and can be complex in decoration from spun sugar to delicious custards or creams.

A profiterole is a type of pastry, often better known as the cream puff. It shouldn’t be confused with pastries made with filo dough, which can be called puff pastry. Instead, the average profiterole is made with a type of dough called choux pastry, which is a combination of flour, butter, eggs, and water. Usually, this mixture is spooned onto or piped onto baking pans in a round shape, and then baked until browned. The interior of the choux pastry has a soft scrambled egg-type center that is removed before the pastry is filled.

Le Bilboquet is a Moving Feast

DSC08423by Steven Doyle

Nostalgic is the proper word to describe Le Bilboquet, the French bouchon on Travis near Knox in Dallas. Here you will find only the classics from a beautiful endive salad, escargot to plenty of foie to keep the heart palpitating in the right direction. Le Bilboquet is somewhat displaced from an era gone but never forgotten.

The restaurant may be a throwback to a time in France where expats sipped espresso or a Chambery Cassis, dined on tournedos and slathers of foie terrine and toast. You may find all these at the Dallas le Bilboquet and so much more, all executed in a dreamy sequence that defies time. This is a good thing.
