Highlights: Cédric Grolet's "snowman" yule log raises questions and mockery on social networks. Food columnist Nora Bouazzouni made a scathing comment on the star pastry chef's work. "I died laughing. It's such a level of scam that you'd have to invent a new word," she scoffed on Twitter, especially because of the 95 euro price tag. Other Internet users make fun of the "face" of this snowman and point out the scam of this product.


The latest creation by star pastry chef Cédric Grolet has been the subject of far from glowing comments on social media.


The yule log season has begun at the big names in baking. The competition is fierce between star pastry chefs to compete in originality for this "must-have" of the family Christmas meal. The pastry chef, who works at the Hotel Meurice, and in his own shops, Cédric Grolet, is no exception to the rule and also offers his yule logs for the end-of-year celebrations. Among the list, the "snowman", an original creation composed of coconut marshmallow, coconut ganache, cubes of fresh mango, coconut dacquoise, coconut crisp. Appetizing on paper.

However, the creation of the season is the subject of far from glowing comments on the networks. Food columnist Nora Bouazzouni made a scathing comment on the star pastry chef's work. "I died laughing. It's such a level of scam that you'd have to invent a new word," she scoffed on Twitter, especially because of the 95 euro price tag. A price that corresponds to the standards of luxury pastry.

I died laughing. It's such a level of scam that you'd have to invent a new word.

His comment followed another remark on the work of Cédric Grolet. "They just sent me this, I spit my herbal tea out of my nose."

The columnist's post quickly went viral with more than 735,000 views on the social network X, formerly Twitter. The columnist admits that she didn't taste it but justifies herself with a cookie-cutter quip: "It's *not good* and the prices are totally unjustified." Other Internet users make fun of the "face" of this snowman.

Others point out that the star pastry chef was recently slammed by food critics, including the famous columnist François Simon.

Every time I see something Grolet, I want to show this masterclass of the "real" Anton Ego (François Simon) about him: https://t.co/ro98zqnvUZ

Others even point out the scam of this product.

I think that "making a Grolet" could become a new expression synonymous with scam indeed.

Clara Marz had revealed that she was ultimately disappointed with the pastry on her TikTok account. "I understand what you're paying when you pay that price, but I'm disappointed with the pie, in fact the shortbread is super salty and the heart is too sweet," she also criticized after eating the pie. When contacted, Cédric Grolet has not yet reacted to this controversy.
