“Opéra gâteau is an elaborate almond sponge cake with a coffee and chocolate filling and icing.”
~ Larousse Gastronomique
The origin of Gâteau Opéra is a mystery. It has appeared in the French gastronomic history since as early as the end of the 19th century.
As a devotee of French pâtisserie, anoki here presents Gâteau Opéra on our pastry menu.
The cake is composed of biscuit joconde (almond sponge) soaked with coffee syrup, dark chocolate ganache, coffee buttercream and a dark chocolate glaze. Using premium quality ingredients as always, we notably introduce a single-origin dark chocolate from Peru, giving depth and complexity in the taste of the chocolate ganache.
Based on traditional French recipe and crafted by precise techniques, each mouthful of our Gâteau Opéra shall bring you the classic taste of France.
Impressive and elegant, Gâteau Opéra makes great celebration cake too.
