You can’t have a Christmas without the traditional Bûche De Noël, and my favorite has always been the chestnut, not the chocolate one. Last year, we ordered one from Maison Christian Faure and I just got one this morning. It’s a Vanilla Genovese cake infused with Antilles rum and chestnut mousse and it’s exquisite!
Here are some other recommendations that I’ve tried or will try in the coming week:
Premiere Moisson Signature Apple-Maple bûche: I love it, it’s a bit too sweet for my liking but it’s good.
– Patrice Chocolate, almond and amaretto Avril bûche: I couldn’t order one in time and they’ve run out already unfortunately. I’m waiting to see if they make more next week.
– Maison Boulud Noisettes et Agrumes: I’ve tried this restaurant once and his desserts are amazing. I bet the logs are as good!
– Andalos Halawet El Jibn Christmas Log: Halawet el Jibn is a Lebanese sweet made with sweet cheese dough stuffed with clotted cream, crowned with pistachios, and drizzled with orange blossom syrup and rose water. It already comes in rolls and I bet it tastes great as a log. I can’t wait to try it!
They also have the Osmalieh log.
I wanted to try Sachère’s logs but they stopped taking orders since December 13.
