Hi.. I am Hicham, an Egyptian architect living in Alexandria.
The eye never misses the distinctive decoration of gâteau de mille feuilles. Using traditional puff pastry, it has as many as 2,048 layers.
The classic decorative pattern is made with the tip of a thin, sharp knife, lightly dragging it through the lines of chocolate spaced evenly from one side of the pastry to the other first in one direction, and then in the opposite direction.
