A bit of history.

Bo Friberg in his book "Professional pastry" tells the story of the origin of a small Christmas log - the famous French roll.
The author takes us to the time when the Franks worshiped the god Thor and celebrate the winter solstice by burning a log and driving away evil spirits. The story continues in Christian times, when in France one chef has created allegorical dish called Yule Log: log embodies the spirit of Christmas, the family hearth and well-being.
