What is this delicious-looking dessert? It’s a profiterole! Coming in several varieties, profiteroles are made up of choux paste, baked into small round puffs, then filled with some type of cream. In this case, it involves ice cream served with chocolate sauce, dusted with powdered sugar. Can you say “Mmmmmmmmmmmmm!”?
If this picture has your mouth watering, and you live in the Seattle area, then you might want to come down and treat yourself to this dessert at La Cote Creperie.
And, while you’re at it, get out your calendar and mark down JULY 10 for the BASTILLE DAY CELEBRATION at La Cote. In addition to their regular menu, they’ll be serving up some Merguez (lamb sausage) sandwiches with homemade Harissa outside from a tent, where a DJ will keep you entertained and the Kronenbourg 1664 (a delicious French beer dating from 1664) will be beheaded!
In the immortal words of Marie Antoinette: “If there’s no bread, let them eat cake!”
Adventure on, and “Off with their heads!”

One thought on “Profiteroles!”
Oh, Kristen! Thanks for the heads up on the Bastille Day dinner. I’ve been telling Jon we MUST get to La Cote Creperie – maybe just maybe, we’ll actually make it over there for a crepe and profiterole!
