      Thank you! I love his bread but have not tried the tort, and I live really close to the bakery, yea!

    2. It sounds like you do not need the bakery to be kosher / kosher for Passover, that just flourless ingredients work. In that case, Sweet Adeline, Crixa and Masse's all have fantastic choices. My personal favorites are from Masse's.

          Hi Melanie, have never heard of Marla Bakery. I love the sound of TCHO chocolate covered matzoh so I will definitely check them out next year Thanks!

        2. Walking by Lotta's Bakery this morning, I saw that its offering a flourless chocolate torte and other items for Passover.

          1. B.Patisserie makes a flourless chocolate dome (mousse inside) which they can make a large version of, if requested

                I did. I thought it was good but it was extremely dense (definitely no egg whites in it) It either needed some dairy on top-i.e. whipped cream or ice cream to cut it, but I could not do dairy. I would try something else next year from Marla or B. Patisserie.

                  The high density is what I like about it. No whipped cream to cut it for me :-)
