Pastry Chouquette

The new pastry of the hour in Quebec, run by the charming pastry chef couple Rachel and Olivier, has barely released its two selections of yule logs for Christmas that they are already leaving like “little hot chouquettes”. The first, under the sign of comfort, skilfully combines chocolate (in mousse and biscuit), Quebec plums and hazelnuts. The second will appeal more to palates fond of acidity and freshness with a clementine and vanilla marmalade, a citrus cream (lemon, grapefruit and clementine), all coated with a soft Viennese biscuit. Don't forget to leave with a dozen chouquettes for the road!

Whether you are “All Chocolate” or want to bring a little originality to your table, the chef will certainly have found a flavor that you will like. Haskap, balsam fir & yuzu, hazelnuts, caramel & clementine, or pistachio & apricot ? An entirely vegan creation is also available.

Chez Boulay – Comptoir Boréal 

< /p>

Always inspired by the boreal richness of the Quebec terroir, the Comptoir Boréal team wishes, with its selection of logs, to transport us either to “Our Forests” or through “Our Fields”. The first, which combines chocolate, balsam fir and maple-scented milk cap caramel (a mushroom!), will delight the most gourmands, while the second, which showcases Quebec berries (cranberries, blueberries, cranberries and currants), combined with maple and sweet clover – also called boreal vanilla – is just as promising. Whichever ride you choose, it is sure to be sweet on the taste buds.

Buttermilk Delicacies < /h3>

This place overflowing with little treats in the Limoilou district will perpetuate the tradition without fail by presenting two yule logs with Quebec flavors; apple-caramel-miso, as well as chocolate-fir-cherry. These creations available to order will be alongside many other delicacies for which he is renowned. Think boxes of biscuits, scones, donuts, filled choux pastry, as well as some savory dishes for the occasion. 

In fact, a Christmas market is organized on December 23 and 30, where several other local artisans will be present. The meeting is on!

Flour & Cocoa 

Pastry chef Christian Campos works with such an aesthetic that it becomes extremely difficult to make a choice, and for the holiday season, his three yule log creations are no exception! It is under the sign of purification that he presents his Peruvian chocolate, citrus and speculoos & Coffee. The first certainly highlights a chocolate from Peru (Alto el Sol 65%), but also the lucuma fruit, worked in cream. The second has a taste of kumquat, tangerine and caviar lemon, while in the third, the spices of speculoos are combined with vanilla and coffee.

Le Duo Choc 

The “shock duo” behind this bakery, which opened in the fall of 2021, is made up of Florent Lehmann and Katryne Deguire: he, a baker, she, a pastry chef. They have accumulated more than 25 years of experience as well as many distinctions testifying to their mastery of the art of dough. For the holiday season, this duo has a very full catalog in store: yule logs, bûchettes, éclairs, pies, brioches, alongside savory pies and festive breads. It promises. Three logs can sneak into your sweet table: maple and pear, praline and hazelnut buttercream, as well as the signature Duo Choc, made up of a dark chocolate mousse, a creamy milk chocolate, a soft biscuit with chocolate and caramel, all on a crunchy popcorn cookie.

The Tamelier 

The Le Tamelier bakery in Blainville has what it takes to become your first holiday destination. Before jumping directly to the selection of yule logs, you can't miss the impressive range of breads: milk square to accompany your foie gras, baguette or spelled and walnuts for your cheeses, household or country bread with sourdough for breakfast, ready to be spread with homemade jams or caramel. On the log side, we are in the gluttony assumed with a first all in chocolate including notes of hazelnuts and caramel, then a second with Java vanilla and red fruits (in creamy and raspberry caramel).
