What is Buche de Noel?

This is also known as a "Yule Log" and to us in America, is the equivalent of a large swiss roll with chocolate mousse filling.

History

Yules used to be Christmas festivals in European and Germany and a yule log was a ceremonial tree. The family would chop down the tree and take a substantially sized log. The larger part of the log is placed in the fire and garnished with remains from the log ashes in the year prior. The tradition has since changed and a dessert was created as to resemble the historical significance.
