Xavier Séjournant’s Bûche Rouge Desir

December 23, 2015
Xavier Séjournant’s Bûche Rouge Desir
Rouge Desir: lemon streussel, olive oil madeleine cake, berry coulis, light vanilla cream and white chocolate, rouge mirror glaze.

Xavier SéjournantXavier Séjournant is one of those restless spirits who stand out in contemporary French pastry. Captivated by this trade at an early age, his different experiences in maisons de pâtisserie and boulangerie made him feel increasingly attracted to the artistic potential that this artisan craft guards. Currently, he is about to open his own pastry establishment “in the Paris region”, as he himself tells us. We want to know more about this upcoming project. For now, we can enjoy one of his Christmas proposals.
