Yule log 2017 by Hotel Westminster in Paris

At Hotel Westminster in Paris, pastry chef Bryan Esposito reveals a yule log inviting us on a journey. This creation mixing Japanese and Corsican flavors is available from December 11 to 23, 2017.

At Hotel Westminster, this Christmas 2017 will taste like somewhere else. Bryan Esposito who already delights our taste buds with his English teatime served at the Duke’s Bar challenged his imagination for the Holidays.

The pastry chef of the Hotel presents “Voyage”, his yule log that will delight globetrotters’ palates. A very original Holidays creation since it pairs Corsican flavors – Corsica being where his wife comes from – and Japanese flavors, a country fascinating him. Bryan Esposito came up with a surprising yule log likely to find its way to beautiful Holidays tables.

We can trust the chef to blend these flavors unexpectedly. We wonder then: how does this unusual pairing taste like? Well, it results in a chestnut flour and liquor biscuit with candied chestnut topped by puffed rice coated in praline. As an insert, a citron, mandarin and yuzu marmalade candied in Corsican honey from the maquis. The whole is surrounded by an adzuki mousse, the red bean paste very popular in Japan.

The pairing is surprising but exquisite. The sourness and bitterness of the citrus fruits are counterbalanced by the softness of the honey and the adzuki bean mousse. The sweetness of the chestnut biscuit and the pralined puffed rice recalls the euphoria of a Christmas morning. Served chilled, it brings a great comfort and turns the wintery roughness into a delightful freshness. Surprisingly light, it doesn’t contain sugar except the one naturally found in fruits, so, let’s not deny ourselves the pleasure and let’s serve generous slices before asking for more!
