Would you like camel with your chocolate?

I hate making excuses, but here we go… I have a wicked deadline and my brain feels like it’s made of soup.

So, in lieu of my usual bemused commentary, I’m going to send you here to read about milk chocolate that’s made with camel milk. I have a few bars that are made with yogurt instead of milk solids, but I haven’t tried them yet. I’ll think about moving them to the top of the tasting list.

Apparently, you’ll be able to buy them in San Francisco. What, it’s not enough that the Bay Area gets Michael Recchuiti, TCHO and Chocolatier Blue? You also get to be the first ones to try camel milk chocolate?

7 years as a chemist + 9 months of culinary school + 2 years as a pastry chef & chocolatier + a lifetime of writing = this blog. This blog won't always be about chocolate, but it will almost certainly be about food. The name of the blog is a triple play on words. 1. It's a nod to my training as a classical pianist. Among other fantastic accomplishments, J.S. Bach combined technical prowess with artistic inspiration and penned the 24 preludes & fugues that make up The Well-Tempered Clavier, Books I and II. 2. In order to behave properly, chocolate needs to be tempered. In a nutshell, tempering prompts the chocolate to assume its most stable crystalline form (beta prime, if you're interested) so that it is shiny, snappy, and as stable as it can be. 3. Depending on my mood and how we meet, you might agree that I'm well-tempered. Or not.

  1. Ah well, you can comfort yourself with the fact that camel-milk chocolate will still, more than likely, make it to Vancouver before it makes it to Dublin. Meanwhile, good luck with your wicked deadline – I know the feeling!
