I have to confess I am addicted to those éclairs. The concept is simple: Homage to éclairs! Christophe Adam plays with flavors and textures like no others. Those éclairs melt in your mouth. They are light and yet so powerful in flavor. My favorite is the passion fruit. It truly feels like you are drinking a freshly squeezed glass of juice. (Praline-Pecans is also pretty good). It is divine, even miraculous. I was never let down by any of his éclairs. the only let down is the price. Count at least 5 euros. I guess 5 euros for a moment of pure pleasure is acceptable once in a while. Luckily for my waist line, I don't live in the neighborhood because I would be so tempted to eat one for breakfast, lunch and dinner.
