STAR-STRUCK ORNAMENT BÛCHE
Nicolas Cloiseau still has more to share about the beloved Holiday favorite: the Bûche de noël. In the spirit of the Holidays, Nicolas lets the light shine on the artisans who work with him. At the atelier, Holiday creations are all about teamwork, where chocolatiers and pastry chefs come together to shine a light on the art of Maison chocolate, some baking, some decorating.
The endless possibilities of chocolate invite a study in contrasts and balance of flavor. First the freshness of the violette de Solliès fig, cut, poached, almost candied, rests upon traditionally roasted caramelized pralinés. Then intense notes of nuts appear and allow a moist crunchy cake, featuring almonds from Provence, to take over. The acidulous roasted intensity of a fine layer of chocolate mousse gives the impression of extreme lightness. Taste takes center stage to guarantee an absolutely star-struck ornament of a dessert.
