Vanilla parfait a honeyed dessert for Valentine’s Day | Sweet & Savory

Crème patissiere is a French tenure for fritter cream. It is a thick, flour-based egg custard used for tarts, cream puffs, eclairs and Napoleons.

When we was in France many years ago, we remember holding photos of a bakery cases full of these succulent treasures.

This is a movement that uses cornstarch instead of flour, and we covering a abounding vanilla baked custard with honeyed churned cream.
