Whilst often claimed by the French, profiteroles actually originate from Italy and only arrived in France in the sixteenth century. These chocolate-topped, cream-filled, choux delights were transported across the Alpine border in 1533, when Catherine de’ Medici, an Italian noblewoman of the notorious banking dynasty of Tuscany, married Henry II of France in a lavish ceremony. In fact, many historians believe that profiteroles may even have had a place on the banqueting table at this royal celebration, introducing the French court to new levels of culinary pleasure.
This indulgent dolce is, in our opinion, the perfect way to round off your meal. The soft choux bun encases a smooth, velvety cream and a generous smattering of rich cioccolato (chocolate) adorns the top. Each mouthful will transport you to the glittering court of Catherine de Medici, known, above all, for her penchant for delicious indulgence... long may her memory live on, say we.
