INTRODUCING THE CHEVAL BLANC PARIS CHRISTMAS LOG BY MAXIME FRÉDÉRIC

Maxime Frédéric, Pastry Chef at Cheval Blanc Paris, and his team revisit the festive season and extend an invitation to delight in a sensational train made entirely of chocolate.

Recalling traditional childhood wooden toys, the “Chocomotive” embarks on a journey to the land of dreams, arriving at 8 Quai du Louvre. Here stands, with its Art Deco façade, a beautiful destination in the French capital: Cheval Blanc Paris.

This steam locomotive, delicately set on chocolate rails sprinkled with cocoa nibs, is composed of three chocolate wagons:

  • The locomotive, with a shell of 75% dark chocolate torrefied by the chocolate-maker Nicolas Berger with, at its heart, a bar of gourmet chocolate garnished with crispy chocolate-hazelnut Gianduja.
  • In the middle, a wagon brimming with caramelized, chocolate-coated hazelnuts.
  • And, lastly, all the comforting flavours associated with the year-end holidays — gingerbread, orange confit, cinnamon cream, a light mousse with green cardamom — decorated with windows inspired by the landmark Cheval Blanc Paris’ building.

Globe-trotting gourmets from around the world: all aboard, as this train will only be here for a few days in December, guaranteeing memories to last a lifetime.
