Millefeuilles and other addictions: Catherine Delors tells all


Millefeuille, or napoleon

It is the mark of a skilled interviewer to go beyond the writer’s sunny façade and elicit soul-wrenching confessions. This is exactly what fellow novelist Julianne Douglas does with this interview at Writing the Renaissance. Now you will know (almost) everything about me…

And, speaking of millefeuilles, here’s a video that teaches you how to make your own. Well worth the trouble if you have any gift as a pastry chef.

By the way, did you know that millefeuilles are also called napoléons? See, nothing’s innocent: we are back to history and For the King!

  1. Richard, agreed! But it was cute of Julianne to bring up napoleons in connection with my novel.
    Kris, oddly enough, I wasn’t that fond of them as a child. But I rediscovered them as an adult, and made up for lost time!

  2. I always knew them as napoléons. My special treat when I was a child!

  3. One doesn’t have to be a Bonapartiste to enjoy this kind of “napoléon.” Delicious and entirely non-political, Dieu merci.

  4. Millefeuilles is a perfectly appropriate name, and probably more widely used in France than napoleons (see the YouTube segment, they call them millefeuilles as well). Thanks, Julianne, for sparing me the agony of a choice between the millefeuilles et the religieuse…

  5. Didn’t realize millefeuilles and napoléons were the same thing! I should have called them by their more appropriate name.

    I was going to give you the choice between millefeuilles and religieuses, but I knew that would be too difficult….Didn’t want to throw you into a torment of indecision. :)
