As Instagram-worthy and delicious as these éclairs look, I can guarantee you that they taste even better.
Originally from France, Nic Poelaert, has worked in some of the best restaurants in Europe, Australia and the UK. These have included 3 Michelin star
restaurants as well as his own venture, Embrasse in Melbourne, which he opened with his Novacastrian wife Tara.
After making the move to Newcastle in 2014, Nic and Tara have embarked on a new challenge this year with the launch of their new business Choux Patisserie.
You will find Nic and his extraordinary éclairs at local Newcastle markets including Hunt and Gather
, Speers Point markets and the Newcastle Farmers market. You
can also sometimes see him outside the Maitland store Twig & Moss
Filled with different flavours of creamy custard and layered with toppings, these éclairs are created with passion and precision using fresh and seasonal
Available in two different sizes, they are the perfect weekend treat or the perfect wow factor at a wedding or event.
Nic Poelaert will also be showcasing his skills in April at the Hunter Culinary Association Autumn seasonal lunch at Twine Restaurant in the Hunter
Valley on Tuesday 4th April. With his exceptional patisserie skills he plans on showing young chefs the important use of fresh seasonal products.
Poelaert admits that it is about stepping them away from recipe books and encouraging them to be inspired by the ingredients. You can book a seat
