For the Holidays 2020, Maison Lenôtre takes us to Alsace! There is nothing like Alsace to feel all Christmassy! And since creation head Guy Krenzer is from Alsace, it is full of inspiration.

Every year, Maison Lenôtre works twice as hard to delight and surprise your taste buds for the Holidays. This year, Chef Guy Krenzer drew inspiration in the most beautiful symbols for Christmas in Alsace, a region rightly renown for its unique celebrations.

With chefs Jean-Christophe Jeanson (MOF pâtisserie), Fabrice Brunet (MOF cuisine), Fabrice Gendrier (MOF cuisine) and Loïc Antoine (MOF charcuterie), they created a wonderful and tasty collection to take our taste buds to Alsace.

The design has been entrusted to Camille Ortoli. This young "paper designer" has created an Alsatian village surrounded by a magical forest. You have them on the advent calendar and chefs have interpreted their good taste for the creation of the yule log. They are also decorating the stores all Hlidays long for an enchanting atmosphere.

Signature yule log: Forêt Alsacienne

For this Christmas in Alsace, Guy Krenzer and Jean-Christophe Jeanson reinterpret the famous Black Forest gateau. We love the Alsatian village decor based on chocolate and based on the house's unique decoration know-how (Yves Melot) and candy (Marc Sibold).

We love its sweet but fresh taste with nice and juicy cherries. Think crunchy praline base covered with a layer of fir tree honey gingerbread by Bertrand Noël (of course!), chocolate crémeux, cake soaked in kirsch, Morello cherry-raspberry compote, and the famous and super tasty morello cherries. And the icing on the cake, or rather on the house, the top is some Madagascan Bourbon vanilla panna cotta, so good!

To magnificently pair this oh-so delicious dessert, there is nothing quite like Banyuls Cuvée Marie Thérèse Reig 2016 Domaine de la Rectorie, recommended by World's Best Sommelier 2000 and Maison Lenôtre Sommelier Olivier Poussier.

Among this year's creation, we loved the gingerbread house (€37 available from December 2). Picture this: gingerbread filled with homemade orange compote and covered in smooth marshmallow, deliciously regressive. We also loved the fromage blanc tart Strudel style (€39 serving 6 available from December 2). It tastes like an exquisite strudel topped with homemade cream cheese, how come was it never invented before?

Moving on to the savory part, we are delighted by the potato pie pâté en croûte style, the most divine Strasbourg pâté with foie gras, the gingerbread and foie gras Manele and the famous Alsatian stew in a casserole to share.

And of course, the famous Advent Calendar to wait until Christmas Day!
