Payard Presents Buche de Noel

by Rebekah Peppler

As Christmas lights blaze and chestnuts roast, what’s left to complete this holiday season? Three words: Bûche de Noël.  

The traditional French yule log, composed of richly filled and rolled sponge cake, can be arduous to make. This year splurge on one of four upscale flavors from Payard Patisserie & Bistro.
I was honored to taste the staggeringly delicious Louvre, with its Chocolate and Hazelnut Mousse and Hazelnut Dacquoise. I can’t imagine its siblings: the hazelnut-laden Piémont, mascarpone and strawberry-filled Montmartre or the chestnut-infused Bagatelle tasting any less decadent. Prices start at $26, available starting December 15th.
