Mont Blanc log by Yann Couvreur Pâtisserie

No consolation prize, the 2020 Christmas logs from our Marais pastry chefs, bakers and chocolatiers all deserve an exceptional place on the Marais Mood podium.

Because we had to choose carefully, here is a preview of our selection of gourmet, starry, artistic, traditional logs... all made with the know-how of artisans who have worked hard to delight our taste buds.

These 5 creations, as original as they are delicious, are already catching your eye in the window and are waiting for you in store, for delivery or even click-and-collect. Let yourself be surprised by their inventiveness!

Felicity according to PAIN DE SUCRE

Félicité, Tenderness, but also Winter Garden or Choc-choc, the creations of Pâtisserie Pain de Sucre lack neither crispness nor creaminess or better yet sun-drenched fruits which tantalize the taste buds.

The palate is softened by the flourless dark chocolate biscuit from the Félicité log, its crunchy hazelnut, its Victoria pineapple marmalade, before melting under its vaporous coconut cream and its lightly sweetened milk chocolate mousse.

Félicité log – from 36€ to 90€

The emblematic fox of YANN COUVREUR

Isatis, a white fox from the Arctic regions imagined by the pastry chef in pecan praline, curls up in a coat of chocolate snow where we can see its white chocolate footprints before succumbing to the log, a tasty composition of biscuit, crunchy pecan, mousse vanilla with a caramel-vanilla heart and maple syrup.

The 3 childhood treats from MAISON ALEPH

Because Christmas is also an opportunity to travel around the world of flavors, Myriam Sabet, pastry chef at Maison Aleph, wanted to take us back to childhood with her.

From his precious memories, 3 logs were born: Pure Pistache highlights Iranian pistachio, with its crispy pistachio praline and a pistachio caramel heart soaked in orange blossom water and bigarade.

The Cédrat Amande log prefers a light, rolled spoon biscuit, garnished with a citron and lemon marmalade and a ganache infused with green cardamom, all softened by the roundness of a Valencia almond ganache. .

The Noisette Halva log, more regressive, delights us with a soft, intense chocolate biscuit, rolled and garnished with a whipped hazelnut ganache and halva with a flowing heart of old-fashioned Piedmont hazelnut praline.

Log for 6 to 8 people – from 45€ to 49€

The magical trees at GLACERIE PARIS

Why settle for a log when you can enjoy a whole tree. Pardon ! of “two frozen trees to decorate according to your tastes”, created by David Wesmaël to awaken the creativity that lies dormant in each of us.

It is therefore up to us to choose 3 ice cream balls, which will personalize the almond and hazelnut praline ice cream base on a bed of almond, hazelnut and pine nut praline, topped with Vanilla Ice Cream from the best pods infused with grilled fir, enhanced a runny Caramel with Menton Lemon and Linden Honey.

Beauty in the Woods by MEERT

When the Pâtisserie confiserie Lille, for a long time Maraisienne, offers a limited edition log, it sends wood! And not just any one.

His Belle au Bois promises us dark chocolate from Peru and vanilla from Madagascar. If this vintage log passes you by, you can enjoy their 5 creations: Red fruits and Yuzu and raspberry on their soft almond biscuit.

The Vanilla Pecan on its chocolate biscuit punched with vanilla, the Safari on a chocolate biscuit and 66% Caribbean chocolate mousse or, for chocolate addicts, the Impératrice, gianduja mousse, creamy cream with hazelnut praline, hazelnut financier biscuit, crunchy hazelnut rock .

3 Belgian addresses in the Marais

3 Belgian addresses in the Marais

Whether they are Walloons or Flemish, the French love the Belgians for their energy and their communicative good humor. Here are some Belgian addresses firmly established in the Marais.

The best tattoo parlors in Marais

The best tattoo parlors in Marais

Tattooing, an age-old practice, has long been the prerogative of convicts, dock workers, the underworld and sailors. Although it has become democratized, now affecting all profiles and concerning one in five French people, including 16% women compared to 10% men, it still remains taboo due to its definitive and transgressive nature.

Piccola Mia, the pizzas of the Republic

On the Place de la République, a brasserie with Italian accents has just opened, which quickly made people forget the old Pizza Pino. Welcome to Piccola Mia, the fruit of the joyful encounter between Italian chef Denny Imbroisi, pizza chef Julien Serri and mixologist Matthias Giroud who creates a creative cocktail menu.
