Luscious chocolate Romanian dessert a delectable treat now available in Ann Arbor
ANN ARBOR-- Finding traditional Romanian foods wasn’t that difficult for Vlad Taralunga and his family when they came to the U.S. in 2003. And now it’s a treat available to Michiganders via a collaboration between Taralunga and 24th Cheesecakerie chef Sean Brezzell. While he is collaborating with the 24th Cheesecakerie, Taralunga said the Joffre is no cheesecake. It’s a chocolate cake made with five organic ingredients -- butter, cocoa powder, eggs, flour and powdered sugar. To Taralunga, of Ann Arbor, the Joffre, which originates from Bucharest, Romania, is more than a chocolate cake, though.mlive.com
