Ghana

Milk chocolate (40% cocoa)
Pure origin milk chocolate in which entirely cocoa from Ghana has been used. The variety is Forastero. The result is a next generation chocolate, a dark milk color that is rich in cocoa solids and with chestnut and caramel notes and a touch of red fruits.

Final selection

 

The result
For the milk chocolate bonbon, we placed a dot of Aka Dashi red miso in the base of the bonbon. Then we cold-smoked our Ghana 40% chocolate with pine wood over 12 hours and then prepared a smoked ganache, which we alternated with a Soba Cha crisp and a salted hazelnut praliné.

Tasting
Since this chocolate has chestnut, caramel and red fruit notes, in the molecular universe there are three dominant molecules of the chocolate: sotolon, lactone and pyrazine. This brought us to the tremendous, penetrating and complex Conca de Barberà Chardonnay Milmanda 2012 from Torres, and the smoked and outstanding tequila Sierra Reposado. The result sought harmony between the Chardonnay wine and the smoked bonbon with miso and soba cha crisp to finally set off the tasting with the emphatic tequila.
