Rain Forest Alliance, Organic Certified, 100% single-origin rare, Ecuadorian chocolate
This delicious chocolate is the foundation of Gateau O Chocolat’s signature gluten-free gourmet chocolate cake. Chef Roux extensively researched and spent an abundance of time doing his due diligence, before selecting the chocolate that was just right for his cake, and for the people growing the cacao. Coming from the shades of tropical forests located in Ecuador, this chocolate is a rare blend of the natural creation process, while still maintaining a rich, deep chocolate flavor.
Certified Organic Eggs
These eggs come from small local farms whose chickens eat a healthy, organic diet and live in vast fields with real grass, where they can live and journey freely. The chickens are not injected with hormones or other abnormal substances. When eggs come from a natural environment, they maintain the natural tang of the egg.
USDA Certified Organic Sugar
When consuming organic sugar, as opposed to refined sugar, you ingest fewer chemicals and pesticides, which are typically involved in the production of refined sugar. Organic sugar also maintains its natural vitamins, minerals, fibers, and proteins that are not found in refined sugar, due to the irregular ingredients that kill a majority of the sugar’s natural properties.
Certified Organic Butter
Gateau O Chocolat’s butter for the signature gluten-free cake comes from small, family farms that raise cows living in small herds in large pastures, which produce the butter. Chef Roux specifically chose the organic butter because of the way it enhances the decadent, dark-chocolate flavor of his signature cake.
A sprinkling of toasted almonds on top of the Gateau O Chocolat signature cake adds a delicate crunch to compliment the light texture of the gluten-free cake. Research shows that almonds may reduce cholesterol and heart disease, which Chef Roux adamantly supports.
Chef Roux chose to use sea salt for his signature flourless chocolate cake because it doesn’t include many of the harmful chemicals found in ionized salt. The sea salt also highlights the natural flavors of each of the cake’s ingredients.
When looking at what is special about each ingredient and how important it is to the creating process of Gateau O Chocolat’s signature gluten-free, chocolate cake, you may now realize what kind of experience this cake provides. Chef Roux truly believes that you cannot put a price on your health and feeling good about what you are consuming.
