Subject: Anna Nurse Memo
On December 1, 2011 I attended the Anna Nurse Workshop located in N206. The featured chef was Joanne Lewis-Jacus who graced us with her skills of how to make a Buche de Noel or better known as a Yule Log.
The making of the Buche de Noel has many steps. It consists of making a biscuit chocolate, meringue, butter cream, heavy ganache and orange sauce.
I loved presentation. All of the steps that it took to make the yule log are so intricate and makes the dish impeccable in taste and in presentation. I also found it interesting that didn’t contain any flour.
