According to Joel Robuchon, April Fool
's Day on April 1 is called "Poisson d'avril" in France. Poisson" means fish and "d'avril" means April. Chocolatiers and patisseries display fish-shaped chocolates, cakes, and pies on their shelves. On this day, children eat these sweets or play tricks by secretly sticking fish-shaped pieces of paper on their backs.
Joel Robuchon's "Poisson d'Avril Fraise" is another nod to tradition. The crispy fish-shaped pie is decorated with seasonal strawberries and sweet and sour raspberries. Underneath the fresh strawberries, almond cream and custard cream are combined with rhubarb confiture, a common daily food in France, for a well-balanced sweet and sour taste.
