Imagine you’re walking down a path. A really long one. It goes back 5000 years. Everything around you is changing. Buildings, people, weather, geographies..everything. But one thing refuses to go away from the scene.
Ayurveda - a 5000 year old sister science to Yoga that focuses on nutrition and aims towards inner and outer well being through simple ingredients, herbs and spices. Our chocolates are inspired by this time tested science of life. Ayu (Life) and Veda (Knowledge).
This holiday season, we collaborated with Burlap and Barrel and Chelsea Market Baskets for an ultra limited-edition gift basket featuring our classic collection and some of our most favorite spices.
Everything about these hand-weaved baskets speaks of luxury and decadence - inside and out.
We picked our favorite classic collection that is loved by our customers and hand picked three spices that complement them.
We hope you enjoy this walk down the history as your taste buds enjoy the complexity and layering of flavors brought together and wrapped in a bar of chocolate.
Black Urfa Chili:
In southeastern Turkey, you'll find black Urfa chili (or its uncured red variety) on almost every table. It's delicious on kebabs and other grilled meats and veggies, cooked into stews and chilis, in salad dressings, sprinkled on fluffy scrambled eggs, and even mixed into brownies and other chocolate desserts for a little extra depth and a hint of heat.
The same species as Saigon cinnamon (Cinnamomum loureiroi), Royal Cinnamon is an heirloom variety not widely harvested or exported, and it exemplifies the intense sweetness and spiciness for which Vietnamese cinnamon is prized.
"This is sour upon sour, a quick barb of citrus, and then the musk of fermentation beneath." New York Times.
Ground Black Lime is grown on a family farm in Guatemala, where ripe limes are dried in the sun until they oxidize, turning black and savory. A versatile ingredient common in Persian cooking, they have a savory, tart flavor that's great on roasted meat or vegetables, in stews and anywhere you'd use lime juice.
