There’s always a reason to celebrate at Delightful Pastries and June 22 is most certainly no exception. National Éclair Day is June 22. The mini pastry ($30/pound for about 30), made with choux dough filled with custard and a drizzle of icing on the outside, is the perfect cure for anyone with a sweet tooth. Full size éclairs are $4 each.
At such a delightfully small size, make sure you buy as many as you can get your hands on.
Éclairs, as well as other treats, can be found at all three Delightful Pastries locations: Old Town at 1710 N. Wells St., (312) 255-0724; Jefferson Park at 5927 W. Lawrence, (773) 545-7215, and Chicago French Market at 131 N. Clinton, (312) 234-9644. Visit http://www.delightfulpastries.com for more information.
