FrontRunners: Torte to Go

For nearly three decades, the Restaurant at Auberge du Soleil (www.aubergedusoleil.com) in Napa Valley has consistently delivered some of the finest cuisine in California wine country. Now the Michelin-starred establishment on Rutherford Hill is delivering some of those gastronomic delights to the home. The Auberge Torte au Chocolat—a decadent confection that balances crisp hazelnut dacquoise, smooth chocolate crémeux, and dark-chocolate ganache—is the first of several items from the restaurant’s kitchen available for overnight delivery to anywhere in the country. The tortes, which are priced at $57.50, are handmade within 24 hours of shipping.
