Drawing of Paris Brest and ingredients

The Paris-Brest, a great classic of French pastry.

Did you know that its round shape is the origin of the Paris-Brest bicycle race of 1891 and represents a bicycle wheel.

In 1909, Louis Durant, a pastry chef and baker from Maisons-Laffite, made a crown-shaped pastry filled with praline cream and covered with flaked almonds. Its name will become Paris-Brest in homage to this cycling race.

Today the Paris-Brest is available in many flavors: hazelnut, pistachio, coffee, pecan, etc...
