For his first Christmas working at the Royal Monceau Raffles Paris, Quentin Lechat has come up not with one but two yule logs to delight everyone: connoisseurs looking for something new and purists looking for a yule log as simple as striking.
Bois d'Atlantique, so is the name of his signature yule log inspired by driftwood. Quentin Lechat delivers a yule log based on soft and fresh flavors, a genuine ode to his native Brittany and Christmas nights with his family.
"I traditionally celebrate Christmas in Brittany, by the fire. The morning, before starting a day of feast, I go for a run on the beach or I surf. At this time of the year, there is many pieces of driftwood. This is what inspired this Christmas cake shaped like a piece of driftwood called 'Bois d'Atlantique'", the chef states.
What is inside this yule log? Chestnut and lemon! Imagine this mix made of a delicious chestnut mousse and delicate Tahitian vanilla whipped ganache, with a delicious smooth core made of chestnut cream. This visual and gustatory contrast is enhanced with a thin layer of candied lemon caviar for a fresh and fizzy note. This delicate dessert also includes pieces of driftwood made of chocolate mendiants for an extended delight for coffee time!
Note this yule log is made by hand. This is why each sample will be numbered because there will be no identical cake.
This signature yule log costs €140 and serves 6. It is available in pre-order from November 20 to December 20, 2021 and to collect between December 21 and 26.
For his second yule log, Quentin Lechat serves a divine and classic chocolate roll. Based on chou pastry rolled cake with cocoa, praline-chocolate crémeux and hearty chocolate mousse, this dessert is easy and striking but likely to delight foodies. Trying is adopting!
Allow €75 for this yule log serving 8. The yule log is available in pre-order from November 20 to December 20, 2021 and to collect between December 21 and 26.
Shall we get one of them?
