Kogetsu’s bûche de Noël

A Japanese twist on the French treat


Sweet beans give the yule log a Japanese flair

The yule log—or bûche de Noël—is a staple Christmas dessert in France. It’s a curious choice of cake for traditional Japanese confectioners Kogetsu to have on hand this winter—until you realize their take on the dish is quite authentically wafu: The log is filled with homemade red and white beans, which add to the festive color palette, and is stuffed with sweet bean paste, all resulting in a very Japanese flavor.
