Topsy-turvy Gateau St. Honore—pistachio, raspberry, and chocolate fillings, with three puffs, puff pastry disc, and caramel décor. A classic is remade here with a slightly Neapolitan tinge in its flavoring. A disk of crisp puff pastry seems to float over a trio of three different flavored pastry cream rosettes, balanced on a caramel-dipped cream puff. Pistachio, raspberry, chocolate, and caramel all figure in this reinterpretation of the quintessential French pastry. Textural variety abound
