How about a buche de noel video before we part?
Since I’ve gotten you focused on this classic confection, here’s a less-than-two-minutes video tour of an abundance of versions as offered up in France. Inspiration is everywhere! What’s your favorite, or are you, like me, fond of old-school versions?
Baking in the meantime…
If you’re needing a baking project between now and Buche de Noel class day, consider my old-school pumpkin muffins from Old Salem NC.
Or leave old-school behind for now and make a batch of these dynamite delicious chocolate chip cookies, perfect for accompanying a session of reading Christmas stories by the fire on a December evening.
That’s the story on my Buche de Noel 101 Class, coming up Saturday December 19th at 1:00 pm Eastern/10 am Pacific time.
