of cream, pastry, custard, cream, pastry, custard...and so on, and so on! Oh how I love Mille-Feuille ("thousand-leaf")! Have you ever had this amazing dessert?
My family grew up on these treats from the Victoria Pastry Company in North Beach, San Francisco. They were infamous for their St. Honore cakes which had little rum and cream-filled puff pastries on top of the cake. But my all-time favorites were the Napoleons (mille-feuille). Check out their delicious offerings here. While in Florence on a trip before we had our two girls, my husband and I stumbled into a great little neighborhood restaurant and had their homemade Mille-Feuille. I'll never forget how amazing every bite was! OH what a treat. Please do try one in your lifetime if you have not yet tried one. It is THAT good. : )
