Piedmont 60% Hazelnut Dark Chocolate Cream 200g
In the vast spectrum of flavors that nature offers, there are some combinations that stand timeless, evoking memories and tantalizing the senses. Among such elite pairings is the union of rich Venezuelan cocoa with the iconic PGI Piedmont hazelnuts.
Together, they represent a culinary adventure, a flavor profile steeped in tradition and finesse, aptly named the Dark Decadence.
Sourced from the very heart of Venezuela, the cocoa in this blend has been chosen not just for its location but for the intensity and purity of its flavor. Venezuelan cocoa is often hailed as the world's finest, revered for its depth, richness, and complexity. It’s not just cocoa; it’s a tale of soil, climate, and heritage. When you savor its flavor, you are not just tasting chocolate; you are experiencing a piece of Venezuela's heart and history.
But what really sets this creation apart is the harmonious marriage of this cocoa with PGI Piedmont hazelnuts. Piedmont, a serene region nestled in Italy, is globally renowned for its hazelnuts. They are not ordinary; they are a legacy. Awarded the PGI (Protected Geographical Indication) status, these hazelnuts come with a promise of quality, authenticity, and a distinct taste profile that can be attributed to the unique terroir of the Piedmont region. With 60% of the blend dedicated to these hazelnuts, their prominence in the taste profile is undeniable.
The velvety texture of this blend owes its magic to the inclusion of cocoa butter. This ingredient not only imparts a smoothness to the spread but also enhances the overall flavor, making each bite more satisfying than the last.
The addition of cane sugar brings in a touch of sweetness, not overpowering but just enough to elevate the natural flavors of the primary ingredients. It complements the deep tones of cocoa and the nutty, almost buttery texture of the hazelnuts, making the spread palatable to both ardent dark chocolate lovers and those new to its bold taste.
