Mother’s Day Menu: Lemon Chiffon Roulade
One of my favorite tasks when I was a restaurant pastry chef was writing menus; this dessert−Lemon Chiffon Roulade−is lifted right from the Mother’s Day Menu 2011 at The Old Inn On The Green (New Marlborough, MA). Each year, my Mother’s Day Menu would have three dessert choices: definitely something chocolate, probably something fruit-y or custard-y, and usually something lemon. Somehow, lemon just seems right for Mother’s Day. I can’t explain it, but it’s just right; I’ve done many lemon desserts for Mother’s Day over the years, from tarts to cakes to this lemon roll. See my post from a couple of weeks ago−another lemon choice for mom on Mother’s Day−Lemon Chiffon Mousse Cake (4.20.16); it’s a delicious cake version of the components in this recipe, including Lemon Chiffon Sheet Cake and Lemon Mascarpone Mousse.
