Welcome to Day #12 of Chocolate and Fruit Theme Week.
Today's Chambord chocolate was created by Chef Shekoh Moossavi at Shekoh Confections (Palo Alto, CA).
Subdued aroma notes for this pretty red domed confection included: faint sweet white and dark chocolate; and very diffuse fruit (berry).
Flavor notes included layered, refreshing, red raspberry in a smooth, creamy, dark chocolate ganache (infused with a very faint dash of raspberry liqueur). This interior was surrounded by a sweet, white chocolate shell and raspberry red "glaze."
This was a classic, elegantly sweet (white) and dark chocolate and authentic raspberry dessert under a tiny dome.
Shekoh description: "Valrhona dark chocolate, raspberry puree, and raspberry liqueur."
