I am trying out some new recipes, some from Geerts. Is there a way to make mocha paste? WHat is it? Same with mallow cream. Does anyone have his book? I have a question or two.

Almond jocund is the classical cake used for the opera
torte. Although I was just looking in my book from J&W (from back in the
ice age), and they claim that the opera torte is choc. Sponge with gouache and
rasp. Preserves! I don't know where they got that information from, but I guess
that's what I was originally taught .

Anyway, it's an almond jocund with mocha butter cream, gouache, and choc
coating. Make sure you soak the layers in a Kahlua syrup.:lips:
