With a French mille-feuille appearance I was straight away seduced by the time and effort put into its glamorous aesthetics. Neatly cut in half, Flaky J and I took half each and devoured in less than a minute. Noticeably the best pastry from the trip and faultless as far as I'm concerned. Dark, buttery, crisp, flaky and a perfect thickness for three even layers. To my disappointment the rich custard offered little to no vanilla content and although a perfect viscosity and richness this really let down the overall experience. The icing was another star of the show; thin, crisp and sticky when heated on the finger tip. Not a bad effort guys, but please add more vanilla.
