This season spread holiday cheer with artisan bread, chocolate, and traditional French desserts from St. Honoré Boulangerie.

Master baker Dominique Geulin will offer a selection of authentic holiday favorites, including two seasonal desserts from his family’s bakery in Normandy: Apple Chiboust, a pastry filled with apples baked and soaked with pommeau and topped with cream; Flan aux Abricots, baked custard topped with apricot halves, as well as a new dessert created by pastry chef Bill Raes, Caramel Nut Tarte with hazelnuts, pecans, and pistachios in caramel. If you can’t decide what to give, pick up a St. Honoré gift card in any denomination – a perfect stocking stuffer or hostess gift.

“Growing up in Normandy, the holidays were filled with special breads and desserts,” says Geulin. “I always looked forward to helping my family prepare the seasonal Bûche de Noël and the Christmas sweet bread. Now I can share my traditions with my customers – and my own children.”
