Here’s tonight’s dessert.  The yellow éclair is Mangue Banane, mango and banana.  I haven’t cut it open yet, but the éclair decoder says it will be: Milk Chocolate-Caramel Crémeux, mango-banana coulis and mango fondant decorated wtih a sugar flower and little pebbles of almond paste.  In the center, Fraise Poivron, strawberry and red (bell) pepper: strawberry and confited pepper crémeux, strawberry glaze and small rings of white chocolate.  And then there’s our well-dressed nun.

Next time?  I might go savory.  The éclair with salmon tartar and yuzu cream sounds pretty swell.
