It took courage and boldness for young pastry chef Pierre-Jean Quinonero, freshly arrived at the Burgundy, this famous hotel in the center of Paris.
The young chef created the molds himself, designing an impressive candle holder. A massive piece of work that makes the chef very proud, showing the image he wants to give to the restaurant's desserts. All the more so as flavors are here for this yule log!
Like Pascal Hainigue before him, his yule log pays tribute to bees. A delicate tribute since the chef worked with beewax in his preparations, delivering sweet and floral flavors to the yue log. The cake is an uncommon trompe l'oeil making us like by the fireplace. Topping hazelnut cake with hazelnut praline shavings, enjoy beewas mousse, wax-vanilla cream infusion and clementine marmalade for a fresh hint, very balanced.
The idea for this yule log is to serve a candle to each guest, namely a total of 10. Very clever, Pierre-Jean came up with candles of different sizes to serve guests a slice depending on their appetite. Although the yule log is very indulging in the mouth, it is very morish! One loves how soft and sweet the cake is, and it is so comforting. If you feel tempted, you can have a taste in individual size before ordering it!
Careful though, it comes in limited edition!
