The gluten-free Monaco has an almond-macaron crust base and an interior of Key lime mousse with layers of homemade strawberry jam. Strawberry glaze tops off the dessert.
The lattice decoration and top button are both made of white chocolate colored green.
After a trip to Monaco in the French Rivera, Pastry Chef Remy Deyglun crafted this recipe to convey the glamour of the city.
“Pair the Monaco with something light, crisp, and bubbly,” says Jeannette Gabrillargues Chacho, owner/catering director of Jean-Jacques, “like French Champagne.”
