Divorcé-A pastry to end all disputes.

As an excuse to get acquainted with the local commerces of our new neighborhood, I stopped by a new patisserie to pick up something sweet for my sweetie and me.  He loves eclairs, but I couldn’t decide on either chocolate or coffee.  But I found a way to settle our differences by picking up a divorcé!  Before you start demanding back your wedding gifts, let me just assure you that a divorcé is like a religeuse.  You must be thinking, “Oh no!  First she mentions divorce?  And then religion?  What kind of blog is this becoming?”  But rest assured, I shan’t write about anything that isn’t already napped in frosting.   Nevertheless, a divorcé is a chocolate and a coffee creme puff stuck to together, united with a ribbon of buttercream.  The principle is that when cut in half evenly, each party can walk away fairly on its own terms.  But as an expression of our blissfulness, I rotated it 90 degrees and cut it so we both got a taste of chocolate and coffee.  So far so good…
