Valrhona's latest Grand Cru chocolate is sourced from small farms on the Caribbean island and features what the France-based manufacturer calls a 'spicy freshness.'
The chocolate boasts intense aromas which reflect Grenada's volcanic soil, while the product's flavour includes a note of peppery mint.
Ideal for fine chocolate ganache, coating, moulding, decoration and glazing, the Kalingo chocolate pairs well with apricot, coconut, passion fruit, ginger, nutmeg, peanut, lemongrass and mint.
Suggested uses for the new product include as the base for fine chocolates and within mousses, sauces and ice cream.
Valrhona's Kalingo chocolate is only available to chocolatiers and chefs.
The Kalingo product is available in 3kg bags of chocolate chips from Classic Fine Foods.
One 3kg bag costs £39.39.
Why should you buy it?
A Valrhona spokesperson said: "In Grenada, which is nicknamed the Island of Spices, the history of cocoa is intertwined with that of spices.
Once upon a time, cocoa beans were polished and trampled underfoot in large copper basins as part of a traditional dance. Today, the island’s cocoa beans are grown by small-scale farmers on one to two hectare plots.
In Grenada, Valrhona has selected an exceptional cocoa variety rooted in the native land of one of the island’s Amerindian populations."
