Patisserie for a Yule Log?

I have been looking at pictures of Yule Logs from Financier Patisserie in New York and drooling uncontrollably.

Does any place in San Diego produce Yule Logs worth drooling over (and buying)?

  1. I'm not sure, but I believe that I used to see them at The French Gourmet. I would also call Michele Coulon Dessertier in La Jolla.

    1. Many More Thanks to foodiechick,

      I contacted Michele Coulon Dessertier through their website and they responded immediately.

          Oh yay, glad it worked out. I'm thinking of using them again myself for our intimate, little New Years Eve gathering since I am making the rest of the feast all by myself.

        2. Azucar in OB posted a beautiful pix of one they make on their Facebook.

          1. Opera Patisserie in Sorrento Valley has made them in the past - I ordered a couple a few years ago for a large family dinner. They're probably a notch below Michele Coulon on the quality scale, but still pretty good. :)

                  hello! I just clicked in while doing some googling about Pizzeria Mozza. I don't think I've ever been to Searsucker for brunch, but it sounds like a good time! :)
