Today was Day #1 of Chocolate and Nibs Theme Week.
Steve DeVries was one of the early craft (bean-to-bar), chocolate makers in the U.S. this century.
I was intrigued by a small unmarked plastic bag on a counter during a recent trip to The Chocolate Garage (Palo Alto, CA); and was delighted find out that these were Steve DeVries Nib Clusters.
The small dark chocolate rounds made from 80% cacao from Costa Rica were topped with caramelized cacao nibs (also from Costa Rica) -- a recipe for fine dark, complex flavors and textures if executed correctly, and it was.
