Paris brest, invented before its namesake cream, was named after the famous bicycle race, its made in a ring to symbolise a wheel. Or zigzag to represent the road.
Origianlly made with saint-Honore cream, changed by the pastry chef from Normandie to the current version with praline paste added.
Thats all I've got, from the French pastry series.
