A European Celebration
Get into the holiday mood early with three spellbinding sweet indulgences that each in their own way are an homage to Christmas traditions. Brasserie is presenting a Bûche de Noël or yule log, traditionally shared with family, an airy sponge cake is partnered with a delightful combination of cinnamon ganache, gingerbread crunch, almond dacquoise, and orange passion fruit compote. An elegant gift for that special someone is the inspiration for The Gift Box from Churchill's Table, containing edible surprises galore, including pecan crunch, almond biscuit, cranberry gel, pear sorbet and mascarpone espuma. While a Christmas tree ornament is the sweet vision for the Mont Fuji Christmas Ball from Hiro by Hiroshi Kagata, a seasonal chestnut puree complemented by vanilla Chantilly, offset by black currant compote and adorned with crispy meringue. The desserts are available from Dec.11-31.
