From InsideScoopSF: Patisserie Delanghe closing after 25 years on Fillmore - last day Th 9/30/10 - owners are retiring. New owner baking teacher at the California Culinary Academy - it'll be called Fillmore Bake Shop.
Darn! For years, I kept putting off getting another half-dozen "Nipples of Venus", now it's too late. Worse, it's been so long I can't remember whether they had an almond macaroon at the base, or a butter cookie similar to a shortbread or sablé.
I just tried looking for a recipe, but the ones I found online were for a nipple-shaped chocolate truffle, not the chocolate-enrobed mound of coffee buttercream on a cookie that I recall. (Or was I dreaming?)
Many years of pleasure. Superb pastry cream, eclairs and profiterole, mille-feuilles, fruited pound cake, choc coated candied orange rind, choc marzipan, the Crouqembouches....
Thanks for the notice. Jonesing for the last profiterole. If I had only known this afternoon I wouldn't have let my will power win out.
