A puffing, billowing French adjective, ‘époustouflant’, meaning ‘stunning’, ‘astounding’, ‘staggering’. It comes with a verb, ‘époustoufler’, and I am époustouflée that no French patissier has had the nous to invent a stunning, staggering, astounding cake called an époustou-flan. If they take up this brilliant idea, I trust they will give me A) credit B) the recipe and C) free delivery of the cake.
