The last chocolate that I tasted from ChocolaTas was the salted dark chocolate ganache. Salt and chocolate are all the rage these days, with the flavour combination popping up everywhere. It makes sense, really, because good chocolate has a really complex flavour profile – similar to wine or coffee – but is missing salt. And salt, as we all know, makes things taste good.
In all seriousness, salt enhances flavours. And since chocolate is already delicious, just think about what a little kick-start could do.
I was expecting something a little bit different, but – wow. The salt the flavours rounder, more subtle, and more cohesive. It really brings out the earthiness of the chocolate, and highlights new flavours, some of which I can’t quite put my finger on yet. This one is fun – you should try it the next time you’re at Granville Island.
