Josephine? A pastry called Josephine?
A friend who lived for some time in New Orleans tells me about a pastry called a Josephine. She cannot tell me exactly what it is, but describes it as a sort of Napoleon but with chocolate. And that's all she can tell me. That and the fact that she is craving them. I make a fantastic Napoleon but I have no idea what the Josephine is. A Google search - an extensive Google search - tells me such a thing is indeed from New Orleans and that's where the trail goes cold. I can learn all I want about the Emperor and his Mrs. a few patisseries called Josephine's and a lot of other interesting bit wholly irrelevant information. But, alas, nothing on the Josephine.
Can anyone enlighten me? Lead me to a New Orleans recipe?
