March First Nibs
This month, we're very excited to collaborate with our friends at East Williamsburg restaurant Win Son. Win Son cooks Taiwanese-American cuisine inspired by Taiwanese street food and night markets. We're translating some of their favorite Taiwanese flavors into chocolate. Our first bar is inspired by Win Son's guohua street salad. We grind sweet hachiya persimmons, a favorite fruit in Taiwan, with fruity Dominican cacao and top the bar with nutty black sesame seeds for balance. The second bar is inspired by Win Son founders Josh and Trigg's trip to Taiwan where they travelled the island consuming copious amounts of fried chicken heavily seasoned with cayenne pepper and Chinese five spice. We're infusing Peruvian cacao with star anise, cloves, cinnamon, fennel seed and prickly ash for a complex layering of sweet and heat and topping the bar with cayenne flakes for an extra kick.
Black Sesame & Persimmon (70% Zorzal Cacao, Dominican Republic)
Five Spice & Cayenne Pepper (75% CAC Pangoa, Peru)
Coconut Milk (60% Oko Caribe, Dominican Republic)
