Fauchon Bûche Noël

Fauchon Bûche Noël 2014

On Wednesday evening me and Carol had been invited by Fauchon to their presentation of the Bûche Noël that was held in the Bubble in the courtyard of the 5-star L’Hôtel de Du Collectionneur. First of all, how cool isn’t to be inside a bubble when it’s winter ? Funny to be “outside” yet inside a warm and cozy bubble, while trying the exquisite pastries and desserts from Fauchon. Looked like pieces of art, too pretty to be eaten….

Fauchon‘s Chef Pâtissier, Patrick Pailler, was also their, proudly presenting his masterpiece, the Bûche Noël 2014 (Yuletide log)…in fancy colours. Flavours ? Tahitian vanilla, passion fruit, mango and caramel-flavoured milk chocolate…perfect combination and a sparkling taste sensation :-) When I had an assiette with a portion of the Bûche Noël they informed me to begin with the white sphere, containing a crispy biscuit with 70% dark chocolate and a light milk and caramel mousse, a Tahitian vanilla-flavoured cream and a passion fruit compote….dreamy! The second sphere to eat was the redcoloured white chocolate filled with mango and passion fruit coulis…yummie! The third bubble, that I got with a stick in it, to have with my coffee was powdered with shimmering gold and filled with passion fruit caramel, delicious!
