This is a decadent recipe, with classic French foundation. I am uncertain as to the source of this recipe, so if it is a direct copy of someone's, please forgive the unintended copy. This could be considered a "splurge" low-carb recipe, as it is high in fat. In keeping with the Medi Acute Phase / and low carb plans
