  • Course Overview

    Coffee Chocolate and nuts go together like… Gateau Opera! A classic cake with origins dating back as
    far as 1955 when Cyriaque Gavillon, a pastry Chet at Dallayou created a masterpiece out of desire to have the perfect balance of every ingredient in a cake in one bite! His final piece of layered artistry reminded his wife of the Paris Opera House, and so a classic was born: L’Opera.
