Public Service Announcement:
Goat Cheese + Pear Williams + Black Pepper Cream + Dark Chocolate coating = YUCKY YUCKY YUCK YUCK YUCK!!!
I never realized it was necessary to know this particular bit of information until a co-worker received a thank-you box of exotic chocolates today and graciously shared them with the rest of the class. Among the more bizarre flavor combinations:
The Olivet: Olive oil dark chocolate ganache, with sun dried tomato & orange peel
The Modena: Strawberry caramel with balsamic vinegar from Modena
The Zen: Green tea infused with ginger ganache, covered in chocolate.
Now, I’m pretty adventurous when it comes to new and different cuisine. But these were just nasty. Who thinks of these things? And, even more important, who pays to send these as gifts?
