Welcome to Day #3 of Chocolate and Spirits Theme Week.
Today's "Mezcal"* luxury chocolate confection was created by Shekoh Moossavi of Shekoh Confections (Palo Alto, CA).
This attractive, pale yellow-green (artfully colored) dome-shaped dark chocolate had an aroma with balanced (not too sweet) chocolate and very faint/diffuse fruit notes.
Under the pretty color was a thin, dark (balanced bold, faint earth) chocolate couverture (shell) that surrounded a softer, sweeter ivory-hued white chocolate center. The ganache (filling) had subtle, fruit (citrus (faint lemon-lime) and pear) and very faint tequila flavor notes.
The end result: a sophisticated, spirit-inspired chocolate.
Ingredients: (Made with Valrhona chocolate.) No full ingredient list came with individual pieces.
Allergen-related information: None listed for individual pieces.
*Mezcal is a distilled beverage made from agave (plants). Tequila is a type of mezcal.
