For their third Epiphany Cake, The French Bastards baker Julien Abourmad treats himself to a collaboration with a guest: pastry chef François Daubinet! Together, they co-created a very original Epiphany Cake 2022: the Pain des Rois.
Long-time friends, the two chefs have been looking for the perfect occasion to offer a four-hand creation. They wanted to gather their own universes: on one hand, Julien's "food porn" spirit, on the other hand, François's technicity.
This creation, that looks like a loaf of bread, is yet a very scrumptious Epiphany Cake! To create this trompe-l'oeil, François and Julien have come up with an organic rye flour-based brioche, whole wheat flour and yeast, sprinkled with confectioner's sugar!
This Epiphany Cake 2022 holds almond cream, roasted almond powder and chopped whole almonds. And for a cheeky twist, some bread praline is added after the baking. A melting surprise awaits!
A cake as tasty as beautiful to find at The French Bastards on January 8, 9, 15 and 16, 2022 for €50 the cake serving 8 people.
