Auntie Yolande’s Strawberry Roll

Spike Mendelsohn’s Favorite Holiday Recipe
“It’s my favorite because not only is there nothing better than fresh sweet strawberries but they are rolled into a cake and covered in whipped cream! My Aunt Yolande from Montreal made this one year over Christmas as it looks like a red and white log, and I LOVED it. I was a kid at the time, about 7, so I whined to my mom till she learned to make it and requested it for every holiday … how could a mom say no to her good greek son? So every holiday, even to this day, I get Auntie Yolande’s strawberry roll.”

it combines the slowness of a car with the cramped public exposure of 
an airplane.
