If you find yourself in New York City this holiday season, take your tastebuds on a festive journey to one of my favorite places - Maison Eric Kayser. In just a few months, world-famous French master baker Eric Kayser has enchanted the Big Apple with his first location in the United States.
Maison Eric Kayser serves up chic and tasty treats everyday but their artistry is even more dazzling during the holidays - a stunning Eric Kayser Bûche de Noël (yule log) is certain to wow your guests! Serving 4 ($26), 6 ($39), or 8 ($52), these stunning desserts range from the heartier Bûche Kayser: dark chocolate mousse, dark chocolate glaze, crème brûlée, and chocolate biscuit, to the lighter Bûche Polaire: citrus fruit mousse, Christmas fruit compote, and spice biscuit, serving 6 for $42. Other delicious seasonal specialties, including the Mendiant “Pain du Mois” ( flavorful fruity and soft bread loaf, $4.50) and Stollen (traditional fruitcake filled with dried fruits and topped with powdered sugar, $23) will also be available during the holiday season.
