Grind walnuts fine in a blender. Mix with flour and cocoa. Beat egg whites, salt and cream of tartar until barely stiff. Gradually beat in 1/3 cup sugar. With the same beaters, beat yolks and remaining sugar until thick. Pour over egg whites and gently fold together. Gradually fold in walnut mixture.
Pour into a 10” x 15” x 1” pan, lined on bottom with parchment paper. Bake at 350°F for 20 minutes until top springs back when touched lightly. Turn out onto cloth, sprinkled with icing sugar. Roll up loosely in cloth and cool. When cold, gently unroll and spread with sweetened whipping cream and re-roll. Pour chocolate glaze over top letting it drip down sides. Decorate with shaved chocolate.
Microwave all ingredients in a microwavable bowl on High 1 to 2 minutes, or until butter is melted. Stir until chocolate is completely melted and mixture is smooth. Glaze should be thick but able to pour easily.
