Quick Reference

Light, airy pastry, invented by the French chef Marie-Antoine Carême (1784–1833), used in éclairs and profiteroles. The pastry, made with eggs, is whisked to a paste, then precooked in a saucepan before baking. The name comes from the French for cabbage, chou, because of the characteristic shape of the cream-filled puffs.
