Last week I had the pleasure of seeing Wes Anderson's latest creation, The Grand Budapest Hotel, and as a lover of everything Wes Anderson does, I was not disappointed. The movie was a whimsical delight - visually stunning, subtly witty, and poignant in all the right places. Then, a few days ago, I happily stumbled upon this video, which details the method for making a Courtesan au Chocolat, the pastry specialty of the film's fictional bakery, Mendl's. Stay tuned for my documented attempt at recreating it!
