maitre choux eclair

Oh Maitre Choux has taken over London with flashy éclairs. A three Michelin star experienced chef by the name of Joakim Prat baking his delicious irresistible French patisserie every day for his shop in South Kensington.

The shop window of Maitre Choux is by a side corner proudly displaying the well-crafted eclairs filled with varied sensationally creams decorated with toppings. Round choux are also displayed by the window, the pastry casing filled with flavoured creams.


Once you step inside your greeted by the smell of chouquettes, I urged you to sample one. Deviously golden crispy choux with specks of sugar on the outside with soft hollow dough inside. It is very similar to puff pastry but without any cream inside. There are only three tables inside of Maitre Choux, if your lucky you can enjoy the French patisserie inside wash down with coffee. Just like the branding plain white walls are simply decorated by the patterns they use for the logo, round circles and rounded rectangles like the products their sale.

When I finally decided what two eclairs to buy I got them wrapped up ready to take home with me. Opening the box the eclairs are like stunning visuals, Fraises estivales is that open top one, cut horizontally layered with a pistachio cream base with strawberry puree. Cut up fruit completes the éclair with fresh strawberries, whipped cream, blueberries, and pistachio.


Spanish raspberry pink éclair caught my eyes, the éclair is coated in baby pink rose water glaze an edible paper with the branding, and a raspberry with dehydrated raspberries pieces and pretty sugar pearls completed the look. Inside the éclair is filled with a soft smooth raspberry mousse.

Although I spent £15 on two eclairs and some chouquettes I really recommend visiting Maire Choux for that wow factor. They make perfect gifts to anyone who loves French pastries and pretty things.
