We got this beauty at La Crêperie of Fort Collins. Without a doubt, worth the drive from the Boulder area.
The Bûche de Noël, or Yule Log, is a traditional French Christmas dessert, made of frosted sponge cake that is then rolled up and decorated to look like, well, a log, often complete with a dusting of snow and a few mushrooms or berries. I rather like our panda. The tradition of this celebratory log goes back hundreds of years; its origins are in the celebration of the winter solstice.
For our part, we enjoyed a lunch of authentic, believe-you-are-in-Bretagne galettes and crêpes and Christmas music on the accordion when we picked up the bûche earlier this week.
Tonight, I offer this as our pièce de résistance. To all my dear readers: happy holidays and bon appétit! May your stomachs be satisfied, your laughter be plentiful, and your joy be heartfelt. Happy Christmas to All!
Also a very popular tradition in Quebec! Lucky enough English Canada is getting to it and we found one in Calgary today 😀 Happy Christmas!
Glad you found one. Happy Christmas to you, too!
Merry Christmas and Joyeuses Fêtes de fin d’année 🙂
