Madagascar cocoa

And the answer is: Salami

Posted on

Yes, the Christmas Classic I have been preparing is now ready and delivered to the customer. It is Salami, A Christmas Salami. But a Chocolate one, according to a good Italian tradition. Dark Madagascar chocolate with nuts, almonds and raisins. Covered with icing sugar.  I used chocolate with fleur de sel and lime.

Doesn’t the plate look like a breakfast assortiment,  salami with  dark bread? I made still Ovomaltine chocolate bits with flaked almonds with extraordinary dark chocolates from Cuba and Haiti. And to finalize with vin cuit truffles,  cooked wine and pear jam.

I so wish that my customers will like my creations, I put my heart to this development and tried to imagine my clients’ Christmas fete by tasting my chocolates.

This is how my Christmas classics look after the next step. Now any clearer? An extra tip: they are originally from Italy.

And that is so last year when the chocolate truffles were round!

These are my this year’s innovation: square truffles of cooked wine and pear with dark Madagascar chocolate with cocoa nibs.

Anybody familiar with vin cuit (cooked wine), with pears and apples and NOT wine? This is a traditional autumn delicacy in western, French speaking Switzerland.

Tomorrow more on the Italian speciality!
