Today on Food Porn Friday we are celebrating National Chocolate Éclair Day. Observed annually on June 22nd we pause to indulge in this delicious oblong-shaped, cream-filled pastry that is piped with creamy vanilla or chocolate creme, and then covered in smooth chocolate.

Éclair, the French word, meaning “flash of lightning” is believed to have originated during the nineteenth century in France, and speculated by some historians to be made first by the famous French Chef, Antonin Carême.
