O Christmas tree!

Café de la Paix presents its yule log cake in its most traditional incarnation : a Christmas tree.

Our young and daring chef, Sophie de Bernardi, created an ode to the Christmas tree, in its shape of course, but also in savour. Gourmets can rest assured though, chocolate is still the star attraction – but it’s been ever so subtly paired with pine.
Almost like a seasoning, the pine tree’s age old essence brings a creative and original touch to this masterpiece.

Inside, it’s a voyage of discovery through elaborate layers: first a dark chocolate mousse with a touch of pine, then comes a pine cone cream followed by a pine nut crisp and a Sacher chocolate biscuit, all wrapped in a thin layer of the darkest chocolate…

Our pastry chef’s unique creation is woody, with pleasingly light bitter notes, revealed in intricate textures, all built on an intense chocolate base. For Sophie, chocolate is always the festive season’s brightest star!
