One of my favourite picks for Valentine’s Day this year is a box of éclairs from Nugateau. This Toronto-based pastry shop offers a variety of indulgent éclairs in sweet and savoury flavours. All of the éclairs are handcrafted and updated regularly depending on the season. They use authentic French baking techniques and high quality products to truly create a one-of-a-kind éclair.
The flavours are incredibly creative and very true to their description. For example, I tried one of their Delux Eclairs called the Cookies 'n Milk which was a chocolate éclair encrusted in chocolate sable crumble and sandwiched in between Opalys cream and chocolate pearls with a shot of milk. Salivating yet? This elongated pasty boat of heaven was to die for, it tasted exactly like milk and cookies and every bite was delectable.
Nugateau has created a lovely Valentine's Eclair Collection that include a Champagne Cream filling and a Wild Strawberry/Rose Mousse filling. They come in a box of 6 and are adorable as ever. Although any lady would love plump pink éclairs that read 'Be Mine', their everyday collection of éclairs are just as beautiful and will woo your loved one no matter which ones you choose.
Price Range: $5-$35
Where to Purchase: Nugateau store located at 717 Queen St W or call to pre-order
