Welcome to Day #12 of Chocolate and Fruit Theme Week.

Today's Yuzu chocolate was created by Chef Shekoh Moossavi at Shekoh Confections (Palo Alto, CA). Her line of high-end chocolate confections is made with no preservatives, and "fresh to order".

Subdued aroma notes included: faint dark very slightly earthy (and faintly nutty) dark chocolate; faint diffuse tart sweet citrus fruit; and faint tart green lemon herb (oxalis). 

On biting into this small, domed confection I was met with a hearty uptick of flavor--a very satisfying, flavorful blend of a dark chocolate shell (bold yet smooth, with very slight earthy and green/oxalis notes) and yuzu fruit (juice) infused into this creamy interior. The rich, dark chocolate flavor lingered in the finish.

This was a very well balanced and executed confection, with a restrained sweetness--just enough for enjoyment while still allowing full access to cacao and authentic, tart-sweet fruit flavors.

Shekoh description: "Valrhona milk chocolate and yuzu juice."
