Small Gain, Big Taste!

Profiteroles
Profiteroles at L’Express

I am really sorry I haven’t been writing lately. School just started and I am now in the 5th grade which means double homework, and half an hour of reading. Anyway, the other day I was in Montreal for the Labor Day long weekend. My family went to a classic French bistro, L’Express. For lunch I had ravioli in a mushroom sauce, and for dessert I ordered the famous French ice-cream desert, Profiteroles. It was three little scoops of ice-cream sandwiched in between two little sugar buns. I think it was a very tasty dessert and recommend getting it if you ever see it on a menu, but order two because one wasn’t enough for me.

A history of food: The Profiteroles, pronounced “pro-fit-e-roles” (like it is spelled) were invented more than five hundred years ago, in the 16th century. Profiterole actually means “small gain”.

Tips: Don’t eat this with your brother. It will be gone before you can swat at him.

Rating: 3.8 out of 5 because the serving was way too small and I couldn’t eat it easily with a dessert spoon.
