Bûche de Noël with Jean Yves Duperret

October 16, 2018 @ 1:00 pm - 4:00 pm

The Bûche de Noël or Yule Log makes any holiday table festive, a dessert that is just as delicious as it is beautiful. Learn from the master himself, French chef and Meilleurs Ouvrier de France Jean Yves Duperret, who will pass on generations of knowledge about this dessert, a holiday tradition in France since the 19th century.

This hands-on three hour class will cover the entire process, from making the sponge cake, meringue, mousse sabayon to the assembly. We will cover a few different decor options including chocolate curls, ivy leaves and more. You will be armed with the confidence and know-how to replicate this dish on your own. Bring this festive cake into your home this holiday season!
