Sometimes called a nusstorte, or a Swiss walnut cake, this torte is traditionally Swiss, typically made with a sweet, caramelised nut-filled pastry.
Although the recipes vary slightly throughout the country of Switzerland, each is said to be passed down from generation to generation, hidden in closely-guarded recipe books. Ours is created using a classic Swiss family recipe brought by André’s son Marcel Bollier after he trained as a pastry chef in Switzerland and quickly became a family, staff, and customer favorite.
This confection is incredibly unique in the United States, decadent and delicious. It is handmade from start to finish first by our pastry chefs and then our confiseurs using only the highest quality ingredients.
Our recipe varies slightly from the more traditional version as we substitute pecans for walnuts. We use fresh roasted pecans and blend them with creamy caramel, adding a touch of honey for an added twist before baking between layers of buttery sugar dough. We then add a decadent layer, covering each slice in our signature Swiss milk or dark chocolate.
As in all of our products, we do not use any additives or preservatives, but this torte is naturally shelf stable and will keep fresh for four months.
