Secret Scotland

If it's secret, and in Scotland…

Today is Cream Puff Day

02 January is Cream Puff Day.

Cream puffs are quite unusual pastries. They date from the 1540’s when Catherine de Medici’s pastry chef created the baked puffed shells for Catherine’s husband, Henry II of France. Although both the pastry and its name profiterole initially came from France, profiteroles are one of the main national dishes in Gibraltar.

There are many variations, so pick your favourite, and enjoy the day.
