All About the French Christmas Cake

A nice ten minute video about yule logs, with a section featuring Loches. Three quarters of French people will have a slice of bûche de Noël for dessert, before opening their presents. The cakes are supplied by the 33 000 pâtissiers around the country. Picard, the frozen food supermarket, sells 1.4 million yule logs a year.

The Loches section of the video starts at 1.15. The first Loches baker, Mariano, starting at about 1.40 has featured on the blog before. And following him is Laurent, the creator of the Best Chocolate Eclair in the Touraine, at 2.56.
