National Chocolate Eclair Day is the day you should recognize as a dessert lover. No matter if you are a self-confessed sweet tooth, or a secret sugary snacker behind closed doors, there’s always room for an Eclair.

Eclair… It sounds delicious and tempting. But what does it really mean? Eclair is a French word that means “flashing lightning”, which describes how fast these delicious treats will disappear if they are not kept in check. These delightful treats were first invented by Antonin Careme, a French chef who has a tragic past that resulted in a great creation in the early 1900s.

In the turbulent days of the French Revolution, his parents abandoned him and he found work as a cook to provide for his needs. He was soon hired as an apprentice by Sylvain Bailly, a well-known patissier.

He blossomed from a young boy into a talented chef. In a time where one’s employer was almost always the boss, this was rare. His talent allowed him to move around freely.

This talent led to a lifelong love of the delicacy, which would soon disappear. The Chocolate Eclair, which was later invented, became the King of Eclairs.
