A Paris–Brest is a French dessert, made of choux pastry and a praline cream featuring caramelized roasted hazelnuts. The round pastry, in the form of a wheel, was created in 1910 by Louis Durand, pâtissier of Maisons-Laffitte, at the request of , Pierre Giffard, to commemorate the Paris-Brest- Paris bicycle race he had initiated in 1891. Its circular shape is representative of a wheel. It became popular with riders on the Paris–Brest cycle race, partly because of its energizing high caloric value, and is now found in patisseries all over France-and hey- some of the best spots of Toronto!
