… just call me the blogfather… I spent another lovely weekend with my London neighbour and old friend Jenny… I’ve waxed lyrically about her delicious style of cooking in the past and it’s always such a pleasure spending time in the kitchen with her as we share so much of our food love with each other… i’m still learning stuff about spices from her and I hope she takes a little bit away from me too… we always make loads of food too and this weekend was no exception if my aching tummy has anything to say about it… I also finally persuaded her to start her own food blog which we named Little Orange Kitchen as she cooks everything from her teeny little and very orange kitchen. If you get the time do pop over and have a look, she’s only a few days in but she has an incredible back catalogue of food photo’s and recipes that she’s going to share with us…
white chocolate roulade
as you know, i’m a massive fan of TOTAL Greek Yoghurt, it is the original and in my humble opinion, the best and the only official Greek yoghurt in the UK… not ‘greek style’ whatever that is… Fage, the company behind total have brought out a new range of yoghurts with real fruit called fruyo …made with total Greek yoghurt of course… they are wonderfully thick and delicious and creamy and actually taste of real fruit which is what you expect… oh and they’re entirely fat-free which is a win-win if you ask me… of course as well as scarfing one or two pots I just knew they’d taste wonderful rolled into a chocolate roulade and they really do, cutting through the sweetness beautifully…
i’ve never made a white chocolate version of this roulade before but I think it came out wonderfully, if a little ‘pudding-like’… didn’t really last long enough to fully critique to be honest…
apologies for the slightly amateurish iPhone photo’s…
for the roulade
Alison Cross says
This sounds – and looks – absolutely scrumptious!

I didn't know that Total was such a hit in the uk!It has certainly been one of the best selling yogurt here in Greece since I can remember! I like it too and always use it when I make tzatziki or any other kind of dip due to its thickness.
What a nice idea to use it like this, although I'd rather mix the Total yogurt with some real strawberies instead of using Fruyo.

I like the idea of adding yogurt to a roulade. Don't I have seen “Total” out here – which is amazing as Melbourne is suppose to have the largest greek community outside Athens! Maybe I just haven't been taking any notice.

I have a friend that I love being in the kitchen with too.. it's so inspiring!!! I think we all should have someone in our lives like that 🙂
The roulade looks and sounds wonderful!! I'm a sucker for anything white chocolate!! YUM!
I love the idea of a white chocolate roulade. I don't know why I have never thought to make one before! Thanks for the idea!

Sally Sellwood says

Hi everybody just to make you all green with envy I was lucky enough to have Dom make this in my kitchen during our cooking weekend. Subsequently kidnapping the leftovers for the Grumpy Greek and I to devour over the next couple of days and let me tell you it was absolutely delicious as is everything my lovely friend Dom makes
