I have no complaints with this decorative dessert…who would?! It’s triple the chocolate for Fig Tree’s Bouche de Noel, or “yule log.” Savory powdered sugar sprinkled across whipped layers of moist Genoise cake, filled with rich chocolate mousse and a butter cream icing to top it all off.
Royal Chef Darren McGrady is the Maestro of this delicious dish. The Royal Roulade Yule Log–it has a colorful history. There is a custom that dates back to the 12th Century in England that on Christmas Eve an enormous log of freshly cut wood would be brought into the house. This was known as the “Yule Log”.
