This chocolate cake is quite the mouthful and has a tale to tell – told by Julia Child, no less. Teaching Kitchen Chef Matthew Stansbury prepared this cake for Opera Louisiane’s comic one-act opera Bon Appetit – a lively, light opera that chronicles an episode of the Julia Child show and the makings of this classic French cake.
The cake was a bit of an undertaking – true to Julia’s child. The result is a dense, flourless torte that requires only a sliver to deliver satisfaction. Bon Appetit!
