Welcome to Day #1 of Chocolate and Flowers Theme Week.
Today's Persian Rose filled chocolate confection was created by accomplished Chef Shekoh Moossavi, who recently opened Shekoh Confections (Palo Alto, CA).
Chef Moossavi offers a line of skillfully-made, attractive, high-end, filled chocolate confections.
This lovely heart-shaped confection was beautiful, from start to finish, a true gift for the senses. The appearance was elevated with a velvety soft red exterior (finish). (Note: be careful handling or plating these as this delicate finish may rub off easily.)
This multi-layered chocolate had a faint, pleasing caramel note in the aroma.
The outer (chocolate) shell surrounded a white chocolate ganache (filling) infused with beautiful and authentic rose flavor, topped with a raspberry-colored pate de fruit/gel layer. It was very good.
Shekoh does not use preservatives, so enjoy while fresh and store these chocolates in a cool, dark place.
