Our discovery/tasting of yule logs 2020 continues with Maison Aleph. Maison Aleph is a pastry shop we love and that offers delicious pastries mixing traditional produces from Orient (Damas rose, jasmine, halva, sumac) and contemporary French pastry know-how.
The place is managed by Myriam Sabet who unveils not one not two but three gourmet yule logs with original flavors.
The first yule log - and you may have tried it last year already - returns for the Holidays 2020 with a brand-new look. It is all about hazelnut, halva, sesame and praline.
It is based on soft chocolate cake, rolled and filled witg whipped hazelnut and halva ganache with runny old-fashioned Piedmont hazelnut praline heart. It is coated in caramelized halzenuts and sesamed seeds laying on a crunchy bed made of milk chocolate crumble delicately seasonned with fleur de sel. Deliciously regressive, it will delight children and adults!
And we have the second yule log that we met last year already. It is based on citron (a bitter citrus fruit from Mediterranean), lemon, almonds and cardamom.
It is based on light roll finger lady cake, filled with lemon and citron marmelade and cardamom whipped ganache. The whole is coated and softned by Valencia almond ganache. The log is set on a crunchy almond crumble. This yule log will likely delight demanding palates with more interesting flavors.
Last but not least, let's discover a brand-new yule log 2020 that is very mouthwatering. This is the 100% Iranian pistachio yule log. It is based on Iranian pistachio soaked in orange blossom water and bitter orange. Crunchy pistachio praline, and pistachio caramel heart to shake sweet-toothed's taste buds up.
The log is then coated in Iranian pistachios and set on bitter orange crunch. It is simple: we love it!
