For the holidays, all the locations of Financier Patisserie are offering Yule Logs in four different flavors—Coffee, Praline, Chocolate and Grand Marnier. Call me boring, but chocolate is my favorite, a tidy roll polished in buttercream and crisp meringue. A fluffy chocolate mousse (more light than decadent) meets matching sponge cake with a 2:1 ratio; a classic, simple and satisfying. And the best part? For the Chocolate and Grand Marnier options, there's no need to commit to the log: individual slices are available for $4.75 each.
