Under a format as classic as the French Christmas tree is the new chromatic collection of La Fabrique Givrée (so good #14), but with a temperature that is below zero. Jérémie Runel has come up with five rustic bûches, with irregular (interior) cores and in the form of a tube, a streusel base and covered with pieces of solid couverture and éclats.
Nuts that are closely associated with winter such as the chestnut are accompanied by Williams pear sorbet in the Blanc Marron log. Another nut, the hazelnut, is well represented in the Brun Café reference, while Noir Amande is a sweet combination of almond and chocolate.
But beyond the use of nuts, there is also room for other logs of less common flavors. Behind a seemingly classical reference as Jaune Passion (yellow passion fruit), is hiding in its composition a riskier sorbet, which links the passion fruit and the tonka bean. And, finally, Rouge Citron introduces the currant and an exquisite raspberry and orange blossom jam.
