The country of the Dolce Vita will be given pride of place at Hôtel de Berri in Paris for the Holidays 2018.
And for good reason, Michele Dalla Valle, Hôtel de Berri restaurant executive chef, came up with a yule log inspired by the Zuppa Inglese, a cake coming from Tuscany.
For those who don’t know it, Zuppa Inglese is traditionally made with sponge fingers soaked in alchermes – a liquor based on plants – and set in layers and covered in crème patissiere.
To surprise and amaze our taste buds and eyes, Michele Dalla Valle presents a reinterpretation of this typically Italian cake.
Okay, we tell you everything. Let’s discover what’s inside this Christmas creation: on a torrone bed covered in chocolate, Michele Dalla Valle put four tasty and colorful Christmas bulbs each flavored differently. We find a vanilla bulb with caramelized hazelnuts for the crunch, a pistachio bulb with fizzy praline for the regressive aspect, a raspberry bulb with fresh fruits and a dash of sourness and finally a lemon bulb with a well-seasoned jam to bring some bitterness.
Several flavors for the very many foodies who will undoubtedly find their happiness with this yule log!
This yule log is available from Monday December 10, 2018 at Le Schiap restaurant and Le Bizzaz bar at Hôtel de Berri. Allow €15 per slice or €70 (available for sale upon booking) the yule log serving 6 to 8 people.
