Although I left the culinary world full time I still like to keep my skills sharp. My co-worker commissioned me to make Bûche de Noël a.k.a. Yule Log. I asked if she wants the Yankee way (pumpkin roll) or classic French. Her response is yellow cake with chocolate icing. I decided to do it the classic way. Hopefully she approves.
As for the mushrooms on the lot I used quartered walnuts.
