Cake/ Chocolate/ Chocolate Extravaganza

Chocolate Entremet

This chocolate cake entremet is a showstopper. Chef Oscar Ortega demonstrated how to make the components and assemble the cake during our Gygi Chocolate Extravaganza.

With chocolate, black currant, and hazelnut, this dessert is sweet and tart and delicious in every way.

Use a silicone mold to form the cake, if you’re making this with all the components. Or just use one or two of the components to add to another dessert.
