File this one under “Only in Paris”: There’s a yummy Christmas dessert here in France called a Bûche de Noël, a Christmas Log. If you’ve ever taken French in grade- or high- school, you’ve undoubtedly attempted to bake one of these with your classmates- a spongy sheet-cake that you covered in jam and rolled into a giant ho-ho and covered in chocolate icing. Well, needless to say, the French take their bûche de noël a tad bit more seriously than that. So much so that they even have haute couturiers design them! This years’ “buche de luxe” from Lenôtre was designed by no other than Karl Lagerfeld. Working with Lenôtre’s culinary experts, Karl has created a cake with a base of cinnamon, orange and ginger combined with 3 different types of chocolate and topped with a little candied-sugar axe- served in a Lagerfeld-designed mirrored chocolate box (bien sûr)! With a price-tag of 115 euros per cake, these treats should probably be saved for the grown-up table… If you’re interested, you’ll need to act fast. Pre-orders will be taken by Lenôtre starting December 6th, and they’ll only be available in boutiques from December 21st - 25th. How do you say “YURM!” en Français?
