Recipe given by

M.O.F. Hôtel Brach, Paris.


A log linked to the world of the hotel Brach.


Hotel Brach, in true Parisian style, an urban plant aspect. It was from the fallen plant from the room of the hotel that inspired me to create the shape of the log. The warm milky and copper tones are associated with the hotels codes.


Inspired by the Mediterranean culinary universe which are implemented at the hotel. The use of pine nuts, almonds, pollen, honey and saffron make our taste buds travel.


The saffron infusion in order to have a prefect flavour balance.


Respect the resting times of the preparations to ensure a perfect flavour balance.
