There are many differents ways to eat chocolate and many differents ways to drink with, it could be coffee, whisky, dessert wines, some red wine as Cahors, some likes it with Champagne, but it is not my cup of tea…
My favorite wine with chocolate isÂ Banyuls, itÂ is a small AOC for a dessert wine produced in terraces on the slopes of catalan Pyrenee, in the roussillon county of france.
It tastes like prun, fig, cacao, and match perfectly with chocolate, coffee, blue cheese and cigar.
The wine bears a similarity to port but tends to be lower in alcohol.
My favorite chocolate recipe to eat with:
-200g chocolate (black 70%)
-that’s it 😉
Separate the eggs, put the yolks into a roomy bowl and white in an other roomy bowl.
Break the chocolate into another roomy bowl set over a pan with a centimetre of barely swimming water. Melt down, and stir.
With a pinch of salt, wisk the whites to the soft peak (floppy) stage.
Feed a saucepan with water till halfull, put the chocolate in a boil, put the boil in the sauce pan and melt down the chocolate.
When the chocolate has melted and has been allowed to cool stir in the yolks.
Gently and slowlyfold the egg whites, a spoonfull at the time, into the chocolate. Stay zen, don’t be agressive, keep the volume of the eggs as much as possible.
Pour gently into the serving bowl or ramekins and put in the fridge for few hours.
Enjoy with a glass of banyuls
