This year, Guy Krenzer and Jean-Christophe Jeason, Maison Lenôtre pastry chef, were inspired by south of France traditions. Because in the south and especially in Bordeaux, it’s a brioche that one eats for Epiphany.
Chefs made a puff pastry brioche stuffed with soft almond and hazelnut mix, shaped like a crown and slightly caramelized. As a final touch, chocolate cream flavored with lemon zests and a décor made of candied citrus fruits come and improve the already magnificent result.
This year, you need no mango coulis – like last year – the chocolate cream creating a contrast with the puff pastry is enough. To warm it up, pop it into the oven a few minutes, it’s as simple as that!
Moving on to charms, the crown hides – in addition to the classic charm – a bean to stick to the tradition.
You thought that was all? Nope! Guy Krenzer also wants to make classic French epiphany cake fans happy with two cakes and a brioche available in the new Bastille store:
It’s so hard to choose!
