Maitre Choux launches Christmas eclairs

Maitre Choux Coconut Snow Milk Chocolate Hazlenut

Maitre Choux’s superstar pastry chef Joakim Prat creates two new eclairs for the festive season.

Feast your eyes on these fancy eclairs. Look too good to eat? Almost. These new Maitre Choux beauties should help get you into the Christmas spirit nice and early. First there’s the Coconut Snow eclair which contains lashings of smooth coconut cream wrapped in light choux pastry and covered in crunchy, snow-white coconut flakes. Then there’s the Hazelnut and Milk Chocolate Treasure, an eclair filled with whippy, milk chocolate cream covered in a homemade praline and roasted hazelnut chunks. As if that wasn’t tempting enough, it is also spray-painted gold so once you latch eyes on it, you won’t be able to walk away.

£5.80 each, available at Fortnum & Mason and maitrechoux.com
