For the Génoise:
See recipe here: Génoise.

For the strawberry filling:
1- Wash 500 gr of organic strawberries. Cut in half or more if the strawberries are big.
2- In a pan, mix the strawberries with two tablespoons of brown sugar. Mix well.
3- Bring to a boil and let it cook for 10 minutes mixing often so that it does not flow over.
4- Place in a bowl and let it cool.

For the chocolate topping: 
1- Melt 100 gr of high quality chocolate in bain-marie.
2- When it has melted, take it out of the water and mix vigorously one tablespoon of high quality olive oil (or if at hand, raspberry seed oil which is harder to find).
3- Let it cool.

Montage:
1- When the Génoise has cooled, slice in half.
2- Place the strawberry mixture on the bottom half. Cover.
3- Let the chocolate sauce pour on the cake.

Place in the fridge for about 15 minutes and enjoy!
