The most beautiful logs to enjoy for the holidays

Every year, chefs are bursting with inventiveness to create exceptional logs for the holidays. Here is an anthology of the most beautiful of them to order and put on the table of the New Year.


Chalet at the Plaza Athenée


Imagined by chefs Angelo Musa, Elisabeth Hot and Jean Imbert, “Le chalet du Plaza” shelters, under its light coat of snow, a dessert designed in the purest tradition of the holidays. The Haute Couture spirit of the hotel is expressed in the sophistication of the combinations, with the scents of spices and candied oranges. For 6 guests – 125 euros.

Tout Paris at Pierre Hermé


The “Tout Paris” log is an ode to Parisian architecture. To evoke this taste of Paris, Pierre Hermé has imagined a gingerbread biscuit, another Viennese spice biscuit, in the heart of a chocolate log accompanied by a smooth caramel and fleur de sel cream. The whole is set on a magical interpretation of the Pont des Arts made of dark chocolate and topped with a puffed rice praline. For 10/12 people – 250 euros.

Stars at Dior by Jean Imbert


Exclusively for 30 Montaigne, Jean Imbert has designed a log for Dior. It is covered in white chocolate engraved with the same motif as the canvas by artist Pietro Ruffo that adorns the Dior bags. It features flavours of vanilla, praline as well as notes of passion fruit and mango to awaken our taste buds in turn.
