Inspiration
After a trip to Monaco in the French Rivera, Pastry Chef Remy Deyglun crafted this recipe to convey the glamour of the city. 

Serving Suggestion
“Pair the Monaco with something light, crisp, and bubbly,” says Jeannette Gabrillargues Chacho, owner/catering director of Jean-Jacques, “like French Champagne.”
