The famous coulant is a well-known chocolate dessert patented by the French chef Michel Bras in 1981 at his restaurant in Laguiole (with 3 Michelin stars), on the plateau de l'Aubrac, in the southwest of France.
It is a small chocolate cake with molten chocolate inside. When you cut it, a creamy chocolate sauce comes out and spreads over the plate. It has different names depending on its origin: "Sofiatto" in Italy, "Chocolate Volcano" in Argentina, although in most places its designation of origin: "Coulant" is preserved.
