Welcome to Day #2 of Chocolate and Flowers Theme Week. Happy Easter to all who celebrate.
Today's Raspberry 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 beautiful red, shiny, domed confection held a blend of flavors that included bold dark chocolate, tart-sweet red raspberry and floral rose--all complementary, and echoing naturally occurring notes that can be found in cacao.
The outer dark chocolate shell was smooth in texture and relatively intense with a slight earth note. Inside was a layered ganache (filling) with a red raspberry fruit layer at the base that gently bloomed in my mouth. The touch of authentic rose flavor was lovely.
This balanced confection was not too sweet, allowing flavors to shine. Thank you.
Shekoh does not use preservatives, so enjoy while fresh and store these chocolates in a cool, dark place.
