An ethereal puff

5.0 Stars

Sometimes you have something so tasty it sticks with you long after the moment you try it. Every pastry I have had since has been haunted by the Gruyere and Thyme Gougere and its near perfection. I worried that tasting it again years later would not live up to the beautiful memory of that first time. So I ordered it again with trepidation, not wanting to sully that delightful thought. My fear disappeared when I placed a small piece in my mouth, and found myself living a beautiful dream.
