Savoury Chocolate Recipes

Typically you would use 100% cacao not chocolate in savoury dishes, quite simply because it doesn’t contain sugar. Think of cacao as a condiment, you use it like salt and pepper as a building block of flavour. 

There are three ways to use cacao in savoury recipes: grated over the top of something like a risotto, cooked in something like a casserole, or added in at the end to something like gravy.
