This beautiful cacao is made from a Trinitario bean from the Bejofo Estate in the Sambirano Valley in the north west of Madagascar.
Aromatic cacao has been grown here since 1920 and has established a world wide reputation.
These are fine Trinitario beans that have been certified organic.
I describe it’s flavour notes as summer fruits – imagine you have a bowl of berries that you have given a quick squeeze of lemon juice.
Use this 100% cocoa in both sweet and savoury dishes.
Plus it makes the most fantastic fresh cream truffles.
This is a particularly good way to catch the flavour notes of the cacao.
Given its fruity flavour profile, use Chulucanas cacao in recipes that involve fruit.
So if you were making a mousse to serve with a fruit coulis, or making a gooey pudding with jam in the bottom.
If a recipe asks for 100g dark chocolate, simply put in 70g of cacao and an extra 30g of sugar.
Use these 70:30 proportions to convert any recipe.
