Merry Christmas

Yes, today is the day and I am preparing christmas dinner since early morning. First thing I did was cooking the ragout for the ragout fin, next thing I did was preparing the dessert.
There is nothing much to do right now so at least I will let you have a peek view at the dessert.

Tata... Bouche de noel.
Chocolate sponge cake, marron cream, whipped cream with a little brandy, covered with chocolate and cocoa.
Have a nice Christmas!

Sponge cake, marron cream... Sounds very delicious to me and most Japanese as well.

(At first sight, I thought it was a mitten or something (laugh).)

Mitten, yes, thought that too. should have taken a picture from above. Sadly it is eaten (most of it). It is a log with a small limb, now it looks like a thumb..

Sissi hat gesagt…

Merry Christmas, Kiki! Your log looks most impressive! I hope you are having a nice rest (I don't worry about the food: your Christmas dishes must be fantastic).

Fräulein Trude hat gesagt…

Sissy: Thank you - as for christmas dishes germany is devided between the potato salad and wiener sausage fraction and the fullly fledged dinner fraction. I prepared a 4 courses menue (potato salad and wiener is fine on a weekday). Red- radish green soup with star shaped croutons, lamb's lettuce salad topped with potato-blackpudding-crumbles, Ragout fin made from chicken breast and boletus mushrooms served in puff-pastry pies, bouche de Noel - no time to take pictures.
