Recently we’ve been busy in the kitchen whisking up some fantastic treats ready for everyone to enjoy. Why we hear you ask? Well after 20 years in the trade we’ve learnt a thing or two along the way and thought it was about time we passed our knowledge onto the aspiring bakers/pastry chefs of this world. That’s why we are releasing not one, but three ‘How to’ videos as part of the re-launch of our YouTube channel this week.

Our first demonstration is based around a French classic, the Mille-Feuille, or as us Brits like to call it – custard slice. Mille-Feuille is a three layered pastry based deserts that’s as far from your classic English pud as you can get but adds a real touch of class to your dessert palate.

With layers of light, golden pastry, creamy vanilla custard and home-made strawberry jam this Mille-Feuille makes for a scrumptious dinner dessert or afternoon tea delight. So without further ado our very own experienced pastry chef Xavier Pelloux is on hand to guide you through how to make this delicate French dessert.
