Choux pastry filled with fresh cream covered in chocolate icing.
Eclair is the French word for lightning. It is believed that the pastry received its name because it glistens when coated with confectioner's glaze. Regardless of their history, Ferguson Plarre is doing its bit in making sure they stay around for decades to come. The most common technique with eclairs is, unfortunately, to cut them in half and pipe them with fresh cream or custard. This results in the cream losing moisture and developing a hard 'crust' over the period of a day. Our way is to use a high quality choux pastry and leave the hollow shell intact by injecting every eclair with freshly whipped cream. This means that the cream stays as fresh as possible and doesn't dry out. See if you agree!
