One of my goals this year is to master choux pastry so that I can make religieuses. I'm starting with gougères, as they are also made with choux pastry. These were made to go with a supper of Carrot Cumin Soup and a simple salad.
Aside from the fact that they were a bit on the large side (I know to make them about half the size next time), they were as good as any I've ever had. In fact, having had them at both The French Laundry and at Per Se, I'm pleased to say that mine tasted just like theirs do (not surprisingly, given that I used the recipe from The French Laundry Cookbook). So, yay me! You can see the recipe here.
