6.For the ganache, bring chocolate and cream to the boil in a bowl.
7.Mix everything together, melting the chocolate and add the Strega liqueur.
8.Leave to cool in the fridge.
9.Once cold, whip with an electric whisk to obtain a very light and puffy mixture.
10.Complete with the mascarpone.
11.Take the biscuit dough, unroll it and remove the cloth.
12.Douse with Strega liqueur and spread half the ganache.
13.Continue with the fresh cranberries and roll again starting from the long side.
14.Cut the log into 3 sections of different sizes and place them on the serving plate forming a log.
15.To the remaining ganache, incorporate the vegetable cream, whipped very well and transfer to a pastry bag fitted with a smooth round beak 1 cm in diameter.
16.Form lines of cream on the log so that it is completely covered.
17.Top with fresh blueberries and mint leaves.
