Translated as 'a thousand leaves' (referring to the zillion layers in the puff pastry) millefeuille are great fun to make – if you use shop-bought pastry. Flavour your crème patisserie with a touch of vanilla extract and use a toothpick to create the feather pattern in the glaze. Lush.
These delicate choux pastry buns are filled to bursting with Earl Grey-infused crème patisserie, then dressed to the nines in tonka bean chocolate, honeyed figs and dried cornflowers. Style and substance all in one fell swoop – what a rare combination.
