Taking a nostalgic trip down memory lane and reminiscing about the happy moments of our childhood, we can evoke a sense of warm familiarity and comfort that adds to the overall joyousness of the holiday season.

This holiday season, Maxime Frédéric, the talented pastry chef of Cheval Blanc Paris, is bringing guests on a whimsical journey through time with his latest edible masterpiece - a delicate Christmas log shaped like a rocking horse straight out of a gourmet fairytale.

Maxime's interpretation of this beloved childhood toy is a feast for the senses, with its rich chocolate and hazelnut flavors that transport you to a world of daydreams and imagination. The log is composed of two parts: the bold chocolate shell that mimics the movement of a wooden rocking horse, and the sweet dessert delicately placed at the foot of the toy.

The chocolate shell is a work of art, with its amber hue that perfectly reflects the wooden design of the toy. The shell is made up of layers of chocolate, each with varying percentages of cacao, and is topped with crispy Gianduja. When broken, the shell transforms into a thousand sweet shards, making it the perfect dessert to share with loved ones during this festive season.

At the foot of the toy, the sweet dessert is crafted from hazelnut dacquoise biscuit, praline, and crispy shortbread, with a light mousse infused with vanilla-inflected caramel and adorned with medallions inspired by the historic Samaritaine building.

Cheval Blanc Paris is more than just a hotel; it's a destination. The urban Maison, located in the heart of Paris, boasts breathtaking views of the Seine, the Louvre, and the Marais. The Art Deco building has been revitalized with a bold and contemporary spirit, featuring 72 keys - 26 rooms and 46 suites - as well as living areas, restaurants, and well-being facilities. The gastronomic restaurant Plénitude, led by three-Michelin-starred Chef Arnaud Donckele, and the entire gourmet composition of the Maison are overseen by Pastry Chef Maxime Frédéric.

Guests can also enjoy a contemporary Parisian brasserie, Le Tout-Paris, and an Italian restaurant, Langosteria, which opens onto a spacious tree-lined terrace with stunning views of Paris. The heart of the Maison features a curved swimming pool adorned with mosaics, inviting guests to a sensory escape, while the exclusive Dior Spa Cheval Blanc Paris offers a holistic immersion in the world of Maison Dior. For families, the Le Carrousel kids' club celebrates the importance of environmental awareness and the spirit of family.
