A classic French pastry fit for Valentine's Day

I talked with Café Boulud’s Chef de Cuisine Sylvain Assié about the art of making profiteroles for Valentine’s Day. A video demo of assembly and two recipes from Baking Chez Moi by Dorie Greenspan are included with the story: Profiteroles, Ice Cream and Hot Chocolate Sauce, and Chocolate Cream Puffs with Mascarpone Filling.

A plate piled high with profiteroles is sure to impress your Valentine, or anyone else you deem worthy of this sweet treat come February 14. The small cream puffs are light and airy, and when smothered with dark chocolate sauce and filled with vanilla ice cream, decadent and rich.
