The English can keep their figgy puddings and the Italians their panettones; when it comes to Christmas desserts, we favor the French bûche de Noël. It’s a very difficult dessert to make—especially if you don’t have a jelly role lying about your kitchen—so we recommend buying one. We’re particularly fond of this pretty pink “Marie-Antoinette” version. Decorated with rose petals and raspberries, the bûche serves six to eight people and is available at 19th century pâtisserie Ladurée, 864 Madison Avenue, New York, NY.
