My first experience of a chocolate Eclair was in a beautiful patisserie in Paris. Walking in to the store, my eyes were immediately fixed on the individual desserts, of course because I was thinking of what I could eat in that moment. But what stood out was the Chocolate Eclair. I had always heard of them, seen them in supermarkets in Australia, but had never tried one (perhaps that is because the supermarket ones were always dry and cracked.) But I can tell you that the Eclair that I tried in Paris was something out of the ordinary. Carrying our white paper box filled with treats onto the train, I picked out my Eclair and took an all encompassing bite. It was a food memory that will be kept in my mind forever.
