We bought an ice cream machine in the summer, so I can offer ice cream and sorbets in a never ending variety in the summer. Last weekend we had friends come for Sunday lunch and I made a chocolate roulade. Perfect. We've got more friends coming for lunch today, so what am I going to make for pudding? Roulade! Now we've either got to make sure we don't invite the same people too often, or they'll just have to have chocolate roulade every time, or I'll have to find another surefire pudding to add to my repertoire.
Yes, it cracked when I rolled it up, but that doesn't matter, it tasted wonderful.
