Minuit [Midnight]: here’s the very evocative name of the new gourmet collection offered by Fauchon for the Holidays 2017.
In addition to the delicious savory creations by catering chef Sébastien Monceaux, the famous Maison Fauchon will delight you too with its new yule log.
This year is a very first with the arrival of the young pastry chef François Daubinet.
The latter worked twice as hard for his very first yule log and offers a sublime and exquisite log.
Proof of it with this log set in the heart of a magenta chocolate bark, shiny in the inside, pearl white, textured and scratched on the outside.
In terms of flavors, this log is made of a smooth cream with vanilla from Tahiti. To this, add a juniper berry cream and a Genoa bread soaked with a light lemon syrup and gin, a kumquat compote and a crispy almond biscuit.
To please your eyes, the pastry chef came up with tiny window-dressing rolls with a vanilla and juniper berry jelly and pretty chunks of candied kumquat.
This yule log for 6 to 8 persons costs €120.
And that’s not all since Fauchon also offers a 3-mini yule log set:
On a chestnut biscuit covered in a chestnut cream with just a dash of whiskey, are scattered poached pear pieces with vanilla and chestnut slivers.
Cake made of crispy dark chocolate topped with a moist 67% chocolate biscuit surrounding a light 64% dark chocolate mousse. A Manjari dark chocolate cream brings freshness and red berries sourness.
Vanille-Fruits rouges [Vanilla-red berries]
Based on a whipped smooth vanilla cream and biscuits with various textures: almond streusel, gooey lemon-bergamot pound cake and almond biscuit. In its molten heart, we discover a raspberry and strawberry compote as well as blackberry, blueberry and fresh raspberry.
3-mini yule log set: €11
Available from December 4 to 22, 2017
