Cookbook:Croquembouche  Croquembouche

A croquembouche or croque-en-bouche is a French dessert consisting of choux pastry balls piled into a cone and bound with threads of caramel.

In Italy and France, it is often served at weddings, baptisms, and first communions.

Name[edit]

The name comes from the French phrase croque en bouche '(something that) crunches in the mouth'.[1]

Presentation[edit]

A croquembouche is composed of petits choux (choux pastry balls) piled into a cone and bound with threads of caramel. It may also be decorated with sugared almonds, chocolate, flowers, or ribbons. Sometimes it is covered in macarons or ganache.[2][3]

History[edit]

The invention of the croquembouche is often attributed to Antonin Carême.[4] Early 19th century cookbooks mention a dish called croquembouche which is savory.[5]

In popular culture[edit]

On March 6, 2009 alumni of the Pune-based Maharashtra State Institute of Hotel Management and Catering Technology entered the Limca Book of Records after creating India's biggest croquembouche. It was recorded to be standing 15 ft (4.5 m) tall.[6]

On 28 September 2008, season 5 episode 1 of Desperate Housewives aired with one of the main characters Bree van De Kamp having to create the perfect croquembouche with spun sugar netting.

Croquembouche was one of the spoiled desserts that Gloria serves to the WJM news team and program director in "A New Sue Ann", the Season 5 episode of The Mary Tyler Moore Show. In a take-off on All About Eve, Sue Ann's show is hijacked by Gloria Munson (Linda Kelsey), who prepares a segment on French pastry. Sue Ann lets Gloria make the mistake of using unrefrigerated cream.

On 20 May 2014, Season 1, Episode 5 "Remember the croquembouche" of MTV's Faking It a croquembouche is shown and discussed several times throughout the episode.

On 1 September 2014, Season 5, Episode 15 of the reality TV competition MasterChef, three out of the final six contestants baked an entire croquembouche in 90 minutes for their Pressure Test. A similar challenge in Masterchef Australia 2014 was accomplished in three-and-a-half hours by three contestants in a pressure test.
