Sadaharu Aoki: Bûches de Noël 2013

Sadaharu Aoki‘s 2013 collection of holiday desserts combines Japanese simplicity with French tradition.

This year’s line-up includes five striking bûches de Noël: Chocolat Praliné, Mâcha Azuki, Citron Vanille, Zen and Japon.

As their names suggest, these luscious bûches de Noël feature both classic ingredients and exotic flavours: chocolate, caramel and praliné are paired with green tea, sesame and red bean paste.

The Christmas collection also includes panettone and pain de Noël, as well as Chef Aoki’s chocolate covered macarons, which he calls “chocorons“.
