Dear SOS: I was at Lucques in West Hollywood recently, and they had an amazing hazelnut cake that my friends and I were crazy about. Is there any chance I could get the recipe?
Dear Katherine: The cake is, indeed, amazing. It’s a bit crunchy, and rich with toasted hazelnuts and brown butter but remarkably light and meringue-like. Roxana Jullapat, Lucques’ pastry chef, sprinkles fleur de sel on top and adds a scoop of caramel ice cream to each serving.
