In 2007, I had the good fortune to attend culinary school in Lyon, France. The village near the school featured several bakeries. Good bread and pastries are practically a staple in France!

Walking by the bakery windows, I was quite in awe of all the gorgeous pastries. Made with perfect precision, an amazing variety glistening like jewels in the window!

Like many recipes of French origin, crème pâtissière or pastry cream, sounds rather intimidating but is simply a thickened custard and is used as a filling for a multitude of tarts and pastries.

This was one of the first base recipes we learned to make at culinary school, classically. It is flavored with vanilla beans, however, a multitude of flavorings can be used, such as this orange chai spiced version.

Crème Pâtissière gives you a recipe to use up those egg yolks leftover from making Pavlova, plus it freezes very well, so make a big batch and keep some on hand to fill your fruit tarts and Napoleons over the summer!

Whisking butter in as a last step imparts a nice gloss to the dish.
