Francois Payard's Buche de Noel

Just a quick post to say, if you're interested in creating your own Buche de Noel this season, or, if you'd like to see one created, tune into the Food Network on Sunday at 11:00 pm.

There, you'll see renowned French pastry chef Francois Payard go up against chef and restauranteur Bobby Flay in a Buche de Noel throwdown. Too funny! I watched the episode last night and it was great fun.



  1. I have tried many times to like the Buche de Noel - it is just too sweet - but I like the French movie with the same name!

  2. My next post is exactly about that, and my failed attempts; but I will try again this year; "if at 1st. you don't succeed"... I hope to learn something on Sunday. Merci.

  3. Francois Payard is now one of my inspirations. This Christmas I am going to attempt the Buche de Noel and hopefully do a moderate job :)
