January 15th, 2022 marks the 400th birthday of the 17th-century French playwright Molière, author of such classic comedies as Tartuffe, The Misanthrope, and The Schools for Wives.
To mark the milestone, we have collaborated with KC MOlière: 400 in 2022 -- a local cultural organization that is featuring Molière-related events -- on the creation of The Molière, a mini bundt-shaped almond cake with candied orange peels covered in André’s signature dark chocolate.
Chef René Bollier was inspired to use almond, candied orange peel and dark chocolate in this pastry because all three were popular ingredients at the court of Louis XIV.
