Gâteau Basque

Dandelion Chocolate

When brainstorming menu items, our pastry assistant Isabelle suggested a chocolate version of the little-known Gâteau Basque. A delectable dark horse of the pastry world, this dessert is essentially all the greatest elements of a pie, tart, cookie, and brownie – combined in a scrumptious treat that is incredible at any temperature. Hailing from Basque country, which straddles the border between France and Spain, the Gâteau Basque is simply called “cake of the house” by locals. A buttery, slightly crispy and slightly soft crust 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 single-origin chocolate. Our rich six-inch Gâteau highlights one of our favorite origins: 70% Camino Verde. After extensive recipe testing, we’ve perfected this tender chocolate pastry crust and velvety chocolate filling – bean-to-bar simplicity at its most delicious.
