Book: The Roots of ChocolateExpedition in Mexico Dominique Persoone
Peppers, garlic, guacamole, wasabi, chicken, oysters, tequila... Despite their unexpected and somewhat odd combination with pralines - the famous “Belgian” chocolate - these ingredients feature among the assortment of flavours offered by Bruges chocolate maker Dominique Persoone.
Under the brand “The Chocolate Line”, Dominique Persoone has helped revolutionise the traditional range of praline chocolates, reworking and tweaking them, as only an expert in the kitchen can. The expedition in Mexico, as told here by Dominique Persoone, is primarily a journey to the roots of chocolate, the drink created by the Mayans using criollo cocoa from Central America. From sacred Yucatan cenotes to chocolate chicken, the famous mole de Puebla to the forests of Chiapas, our voyage of discovery takes us through more than 2000 years of history.
And like any self-respecting gourmand explorer, Dominique Persoone brings home a collection of delicious treasures, transforming them into dozens of original recipes. A gourmet tale, to be devoured and savoured like a chocolate slowly melting in your mouth.
