Gâteau Basque

Dandelion Chocolate

Hailing from Basque country straddling the border of France and Spain, the Gâteau Basque is simply called “cake of the house” by locals. A buttery, slightly crispy and slightly soft crust traditionally encases smooth pastry cream or jam; the beautiful contrast of crumbly and creamy layers creates a truly unique pastry experience made even more special with our single-origin-chocolate cream filling. Our rich six-inch gâteau highlights one of our favorite origins: 70% Camino Verde. After extensive recipe testing, we’ve perfected this tender chocolate crust and velvety chocolate filling — bean-to-bar simplicity at its most delicious.
