The Christmas log the 5* Hôtel & Chalets l’Alpaga

Pastry chef Tess Evans-Mialet immerses us in the magic of Christmas with a log inspired by the snack that children offer Santa Claus for the night of December 24. Some prepare a glass of milk with a bar of chocolate, oranges, cookies, vanilla biscuits or many other treats. Traditions vary depending on families and regions. Tess Evans-Mialet chose to mix the markers of the different snacks, so that everyone can find a little of their own drawing and can return to their childhood through indulgence: a light chocolate mousse of pure Brazilian origin 72%, refreshed with a slight zest of orange. At its heart, we find raw milk jam from a local farm and a creamy Tanzania milk chocolate, enhanced with fragrant woodruff collected and dried by the chef this summer. As a decor, chocolate from elsewhere allows you to create a truly local decor with the Mont-Blanc range in the background and the red Megève gondola in the foreground.
