What is a Bûche de Noël?
As the December holiday season arrives in France, pastry shop windows fill with Bûches de Noël (Yule logs) in many flavours. Shaped like miniature fireplace logs, the Bûche de Noël is a sponge cake base with a buttercream or ganache filling. These holiday cakes are rolled into a cylinder shape with a creamy interior and finished with a whimsical design. Talented pastry chefs add edible decorations (mushrooms, berries, branches and more) made with meringue or marzipan.

Cook’n With Class has been in operation since 2007 in Paris, offering French Cooking Classes (in English) to visiting tourists and locals interested in learning French cuisine’s essentials. The school offers classes from French Market to Bread Baking and Macarons. Chef Eric Fraudeau, who worked both in France and internationally, and his wife, Yetunde Oshodi-Fraudeau, opened their second school, Cook’n With Class Uzès, in 2015 in the sunny south of France, this time focusing on Provençal and Mediterranean cuisine. They also offer a 5 day/7-night culinary holiday package (Week in Uzès), including accommodations, with tours, tastings and, of course, cooking.
