For Epiphany 2021, The French Bastards teamed up with Saint-Petersburg Four Seasons palace pastry chef Nicolas Lambert to create a tasty Epiphany Cake 2021.

For their second Epiphany Cake,The French Bastards baker Julien Abourmad treats himself to a collaboration with a guest: Nicolas Lambert, aka Saint-Petersburg Four Seasons palace pastry chef. Together, they co-created an Epiphany Cake 2021 remotely! 

It is in February 2020 that Julien Abourmad meets Nicolas Lambert in Paris and the idea of a four-hand between the two chefs grows obvious. They then decide to work together on an Epiphany Cake. But it was without including lockdown and the travel ban. They then decide to keep working together remotely and hold several video-conferences, despite the time difference, to come up with a super tasty creation: a caramel-pecan Epiphany Cake 2021.

As for the recipeNicolas Lambert got inspired by a signature dessert served at Saint-Petersburg Four seasons, the caramel and homemade pecan praline choux puff with some hearty pecan/almond/caramel frangipane. It fills a semi-inverted puff pastry with DPO Montaigu butter.

And to stick to the Bastards even more, Julien tops it with a very fine layer of homemade Florentin caramel. And Nicolas brings his elegant touch with a composition of spicy-syrup infused pecanssandy pecans and homemade fudge.

A cake as tasty as beautiful to find at The French Bastards on Saturday January 2, Sunday 3, Saturday 9 and Sunday 10, 2021 for €45 the cake serving 6 to 8 people.

Will you get the lucky bean hidden inside?
