Napoleon Cake

“Like father, like son.” This is a phrase that perfectly describes the relationship between chef Lasse Sorrenson and his father Gert Sorrenson. And as you will see, the father certainly passed his culinary interest and skills to his son. In the next segment, we visit this duo at Lasse’s Restaurant Tom’s Place in Desoto. Today, they are creating a classic European dessert that is light and flaky... it’s called a Napoleon Cake. Lasse and his father not only show us how they make this delicious crème filled pastry, but also share tips on how to properly eat this tasty desert.
