A Guided Tasting of the World Renowned Rooster
Sweet and savory, reinterpreted. Follow the guided tasting notes to best enjoy the tall rooster chocolate. This is a cult favorite, as well as my personal favorite. Made with Emilio Mauri’s Taleggio, a cave-aged cows milk cheese from Pasturo in the Lombardi region of Italy, this unctuous cheese is combined with organic walnuts and Tahitian vanilla beans draped in 62% cacao dark chocolate. The combination of cheese and chocolate may seem acerbic and perplexing, but in one bite you will see its valor.
To begin, close your eyes. Take three deep, ujjayi breaths.
1. Start from the top
Bite into the crowning tip of the chocolate. Hold the chocolate on your tongue and press it to the roof of your mouth. Feel it melt bittersweetly around your tongue. Begin to eat and you will sense a touch of Taleggio and a nuance of vanilla.
2. Intrigue Follows
The second bite brings you deeper into the parfums -a heavy and rich texture dotted with toasted walnuts. The aroma is steeped with a thousand complexities, yet there is harmony. As the salt hits the palate, it meets the sweetness of the chocolate, the one constantly begging for the other to be complete.
3. Met with clarity
The third bite is met with clarity. The profusion of flavors wrapped and intertwined come together to make sense. You are submerged deeply in a moment of now and with this last bite, all you crave is just one more.
"I had the desire to create a savory + sweet collection and I knew I wanted to bring cheese into chocolate in one tasting experience It took many late nights to perfect the ideal emulsion of prized taleggio cheese and dark chocolate, which I also studded with walnuts. This carefully crafted cheese... with a nutty and slightly fruity taste."
Peace, Love & Chocolate,
