Beautiful, graphic and delicious! The yule log 2018 by pastry chef Pascal Hainigue will likely have many fans.
Called “Le Flocon du Burgundy Paris” [Burgundy Paris Flake], this yule log is a creation with a clean design in 3 dimensions revealing an incredible assembling work wonderfully mixing chocolate-caramel and chocolatey branches put on a transparent plexiglass structure.
“Visually speaking, I wanted to transcribe the alliance between the two fantastic worlds, the Holidays one and the High Jewelry one around a creation reminding us of childhood taste. The idea is to be able to present it as a centerpiece on the table and serve it cut into six very distinct slices.” Burgundy Paris pastry chef Pascal Hainigue tells us.
In terms of flavors, this entremets bets on 62% cocoa Macaé dark chocolate from Brazil and caramel.
To go even further in the greed, this yule log unveils several layers including first of all a flour-less dark chocolate cake, then a crispy cookie based on “crêpe dentelle” sprinkles, a dark chocolate mousse and a soft heart based on caramel cream and cocoa beans nibs and finally a shiny glaze enhanced by some gold leaves.

It will be also possible to discover the flavors of Burgundy yule log through a revisit by the plate at the new Le Charles bar and Le Baudelaire restaurant from December 15 to 26, 2018.
