Don’t get us wrong: We hate the fact that so many classic French bistros are serving their customers frozen food. Food in restaurants should always be made at that restaurant. However, there is a place for frozen food in France: the kitchens of locals and visitors. Luckily for the French, their frozen food is a cut above that of the rest of the world.
These little puff pastries look like rosebuds. They are deep pink in color, artfully shaped, and are stuffed with foie gras and black cherry confit. They’re designed to look like dessert so your guests can encounter a pleasant surprise. It’s not the most well thought-out surprise, as your guest could be vegetarian or really want dessert, but it’s the playfulness of the thought that counts.
