Concorde – Gascone Lenôtre
Gateau Concorde was created as a tribute to the legendary Concorde aircraft back in the ’70s by Gascone Le Gaston Lenôtre.
The Gateau is a combination of layers of chocolate meringue and chocolate mousse.
Gascone Lenôtre was born in Normandy in 1920. Following the war, Lenôtre opened a small bakery. The venture was a success and in 1957 he came upon the opportunity to purchase a tiny bakery in the 16th Arrondissement of Paris. His new establishment did extremely well from the outset and is said to have presaged nouvelle cuisine. Lenôtre was renowned for concentrating on simple preparations and fresh ingredients, and for insisting on using the best butter in his pastries.
