ChocolateBet: March 29, 2011

Chocolate of the Day:
2 pieces
Recchiuti
Sesame Nougat
Very Good
Weight: .48 oz. (13.5 g.) for 2 pieces
Calories: 69 calories for 2 pieces
Cost: $2.55
Purchased from: Cocoa Bella, in Westfield/Market St. location, San Francisco, CA

At $85.00 (USD) per pound, my expectations for chocolate rise accordingly, and Recchiuti does deliver fine, well-manicured chocolates. The good news: a few small pieces of Sesame Nougat chocolate (with crunchy bits of caramelized sesame seeds and dark chocolate ganache) can be very satisfying.

Recchiuti is on my list of must-visit chocolate shops for my August business trip to the Bay Area. Have you seen his cookbook? He has some wonderful caramel-based recipes.
