Born and raised in the center of Paris, France, Chloé grew up baking French pastries with her grandmother who was a specialist for making crepes and sweet tarts.
Over the years, Chloé created her own secret recipe for the traditional French dessert "Fondant au chocolat”, a chocolate cake with a molten heart and delighted friends and family with these decadent cakes.
After graduating with a degree in marketing from Leonard de Vinci University in Paris, Chloé moved to Detroit to make her dream come true: reinterpret the french Lava Cake.
The French Lava Cakes
The Lava cakes, called “Fondant au Chocolat” in french, became a classic dessert in French gourmet restaurants over the last 20 years.
A Lava Cake is chocolate-based with a molten center that resembles the lava flowing out of a volcano.
The "Fondant au chocolat" was born in 1981 in the center of France by the creative chef Michel Bras.
"It all started with an emotion", tells the cook on the phone. "After returning home from skiing with the family, everyone was quiet and freezing. Once they started drinking hot chocolate at the table, tongues were loosened, the atmosphere was warm and everyone was happy. At this time, I was fascinated. I tried to recreate this feeling in the kitchen."
