Petit Four éclair au chocolat
10x10 cm (aprox 4"x 4'" inches)
oil on gessoboard, made in Italy
The éclair au chocolat is the probably the all time favorite of traditional French pastries. I was astounded to see that they sold them on the beach in the middle of the summer near Toulon. I think I'd rather eat one in mid winter rather than while thinking of my bikini line.
