Feitoria do Cacao, India 72% mandarin & cayenne pepper
One of the most important role of the Portuguese navigators during discovery times was the globalisation of culture and gastronomy.
In the 15th century, the chilli pepper that Christopher Columbus brought from Latin America was spread by the Portuguese in Europe, and beyond. According to one of the historical theories, the Portuguese spread this spice in India, and across Macau, also to China and even Japan.
The Portuguese introduced the sweet orange from China to Europe in the 16th century. Tangerine was later, in the 19th century, imported by the English to Europe, and then the Portuguese distributed this fruit to Brazil.
Tangerine and Cayenne Pepper. To incorporate these exotic ingredients, we chose India 72% Dark Chocolate, whose note is ripe citrus with a structured body. In addition to bringing the perfect profile to the recipe, the origin of this cocoa is the Kerala region, which was formerly part of the Portuguese state of India.
It is a chocolate to honor Portuguese history, and the countries and regions, which generously exchanged their relics, which continue to enrich our table even today.
