Eclairs with pistachio cream and strawberries à la Christophe Adam.


-500 g choux pastry

For the pistachio ganache:
-300 g of the white chocolate of good quality
-150 g of cream of 35% fat
-2 tablespoons pistachio paste
-0.5 teaspoons of Matcha or green food coloring (optional)

-Two handfuls of strawberries
-A bunch of mint
-100g chopped unsalted pistachios

Yield: 10-12 large eclairs


1. First prepare ganache. Pour the cream into a saucepan, add the white chocolate, stir. And is mounted on a water bath – omit a third in the second pot of boiling water.

2. Begin to heat chocolate, stirring constantly. When the chocolate is melted almost completely, remove the pan from the water bath. And stir until complete dissolution of the chocolate. The mixture should not boil.

3. While the ganache hot and liquid, it can be flavored and embellish. Interfere with two tablespoons pistachio paste (if not finished, you can prepare home – for example, like this). In principle, pistachio paste already give some shade of green. But I want to get a deeper color – so I take half a teaspoon of the match (green tea powder) and dissolved in 50 ml of boiling water. A uniform mixture of saturated green like a liquid gouache. And I add, just a drop, so as not to overdo it in the cream – to achieve the desired shade.

4. Ready send ganache in the fridge for 3-4 hours – to stabilize. A better at night.

5. In the morning we obtain ganache from the refrigerator and set aside aside. Wait until warm up to room temperature (of almost solid paste – in soft and ductile). Now ganache can be whipped – by hand or with a mixer at low speed – and we get a stable cream-like consistency is very thick whipped cream.

6. A ganache is heated to room temperature after the fridge, prepare Choux pastry and bake according to the recipe eclairs. For these cakes eclairs should be larger, so the baking is deposited on the nozzle diameter of about 2.5 cm

7. Ready eclairs decorate with cream, strawberries and chopped pistachios. Decorate with mint just before serving, it is desirable, as it quickly fades.
