EcoleChocolat and Chocomap are putting together a series of videos featuring the work of some of EcoleChocolat’s grads.
The first in the series features grad Beth Tully who’s based in Wichita Kansas, and her line, Cocoa Dolce.
Visiting a box of Beth Tully’s yummy chocolate creations makes me very happy. Not just because they are beautiful, but because there is a sense of fun in the shapes, colours and adornments of the pieces I see in the box.
From the slender triangular “mountain range” of burnt caramel, topped with a white chocolate snow blanket, to the sparkling, tiny, perfect bittersweet cup of crème brule, the mixture of textures, shapes and colours invites the happy recipient to get one’s fingers in and explore.
It is very tempting to pop the whole morsel in my mouth, but I do bite the crème brule in half, to see the lovely layers of ganache and white chocolate, topped with sugar crunch. The shell snaps satisfyingly against teeth and tongue, in contrast to the smooth interior, which also contrasts nicely with the crunchiness of the sugar. The sweetness of the sugar is nicely off-set too, by the dark chocolate. Mmm, I wish I could be more descriptive, but this piece takes like – more.
Take a look, here to see a sampling of Cocoa Dolce’s pieces.
