Thanks to Abby, I got introduced to Amedei, a chocolate company based in Italy, in the Tuscany region. Abby invited me to join her at Amedei's event to celebrate their first, albeit tiny, shop in New York, near Union Square. What a find!
Stepping into their little space, we take a look at the chocolates on display.
Neatly arranged under the glass case, chocolates, and more chocolates. I couldn't wait to try them!
We headed to the private event space upstairs where there were chocolates everywhere!
If there was a raised flat surface, there was chocolate. All different kinds, and all really decadent. Blocks of chocolate cut into caveman sized chunks, dainty pralines, chocolate fondue (with carrots and celery for dipping!), I tried them all.
The flavors were so complex, and the textures so smooth, the chocolates just tasted luxurious.
Along with the chocolate, they served bite-sized savories made with chocolate, like this white chocolate and cauliflower soup. Who knew cauliflower could taste this good?
And before heading out, a couple of more bites of this Toscano Nut Brown, a gianduja based chocolate, a blend of chocolate and hazelnut. So creamy, and rich with the perfect amount of sweetness.
