In the video above, the staff at Mendl’s, Zubrowka’s premiere patisserie, show you how to make their legendary courtesan au chocolat. The cream-filled pastry is enjoyed my M. Gustave and all those at The Grand Budapest Hotel in Wes Anderson’s latest film. BuzzFeed explains how the pastry came to be:

“According to Budapest producer Jeremy Dawson, the pastry ‘was part of the story from the beginning.’ They asked a local baker in Gorlitz, Germany, where the film was shot (Anemone Müller of Cafe CaRe) to come up with something similar to a classic religieuse pastry. Then she worked with Anderson to perfect the final look.”
