• Live yoghurt can be substituted for cultured buttermilk to start the fermentation
in the crème fraiche.
• Placing another Baking tray on top of the pastry prevents the puff from rising too much
and provides a crisper result.
• Smoked trout can be substituted with hot smoked salmon, mackerel or other oily fish.
