Valrhona Illanka Dark Chocolate Pistoles - 63%

Valrhona Illanka Dark Chocolate is an outstanding French baking chocolate providing a seductively smooth texture and robust, tangy flavor for multiple preparations. It all starts with Gran Blanco beans: these rare white cocoa beans are renowned for their exquisite aromatic qualities, and Valrhona has worked closely with Peruvian farmers to harvest this award-winning cocoa variety. The lush tropical forests of Northern Peru imbue the cocoa with tropical notes of sun-ripened blackberry, blueberry and grape, not to mention hints of roasted peanuts. With 63% cocoa, this is a complex dark chocolate that rewards the palate and enhances anything from decorations to ganaches to enrobings to glazes.

This product comes in a resealable bag to maintain optimum freshness. The chocolate is presented in oval-shaped feves that pastry chefs will find easier to work with than larger blocks of chocolate. Consider pairing the chocolate with sharp, tangy fruits such as grapefruit, orange, blackberry or yuzu, exotic spices like saffron or expelette chilli, or sweet flavors like caramel, almond milk or cheesecake.

This product is made by Valrhona, a French chocolate company that has acquired almost legendary reputation since its establishment in southern France in 1922. Providing the world with cutting-edge chocolates like Illanka and Jivara Lactee, Valrhona is one of the world's leading specialists in luxury chocolate, with its expert chefs even founding several Écoles du Grand Chocolat to train new generations of chocolatiers. When Michelin-starred restaurants require chocolate, these are the masters to which they turn.
