Italian Roulade

Italian roulade, also known as “rotolo” in Italian, is a savory or sweet dish that is made by rolling up a thin sheet of sponge cake or meat filled with various ingredients. The filling can vary depending on whether it’s a sweet or savory roulade.

In the case of a savory Italian roulade, the thin sheet of meat, such as beef or veal, is typically pounded to flatten it and then layered with a mixture of ingredients like cheese, vegetables, herbs, and sometimes cured meats like prosciutto or salami. The meat is then rolled tightly, forming a spiral shape, and secured with cooking twine or toothpicks. It is often seared or roasted to cook the meat and set the filling.

On the other hand, a sweet Italian roulade is typically made with a thin sheet of sponge cake. The cake is usually baked in a large rectangular or square pan and then spread with a sweet filling, such as fruit preserves, whipped cream, chocolate ganache, or a combination of these. The sponge cake is rolled up tightly, enclosing the filling, and often dusted with powdered sugar or frosted with icing before serving.

Italian roulades can be served as appetizers, main courses, or desserts, depending on the type and filling. They are known for their beautiful presentation and delicious flavors.
