At this time of the year, despite the absence of restaurants and the withdrawal of some palaces, chefs are still taking advantage of the opportunity to make our taste buds and eyes capsize at the same time. Among those of pastry chefs, big houses and hotels, here is a selection of the most beautiful top-of-the-range Christmas logs.
Mont Ritz by François Perret
Christmas being synonymous with parties, meals and snowy weather, the pastry chef François Perret unveils a sublime traditional Christmas dessert through a crest shaped log immaculate as powder. This creation pays homage to César Ritz and his (Swiss) origins as the first hotelier to have developed in the luxury sector. The tops are made of chestnut cream and extremely light mousse like whipped cream. The creation can be enjoyed at the Bar Vendôme at the Ritz Paris from 28 November to 24 December 2020, but is sold in a limited edition at a price of 110 euros for 6 persons.
“I wanted this log full of freshness and lightness so that the visual and gustatory escape immediately transports young and old into the enchantment of a Christmas in the high mountains. From the very first bite, it triggers the reassuring whirlwind of pleasure of a chestnut cream combined with a foam as vaporous as a snowflake”, says François Perret.
