You may not think that chocolate and cheese go well together, but you should have another think. Recchiuti here in San Francisco has been doing a series of chocolate tastings that pair their excellent chocolates with other types of foods. The other day they proved that chocolate and cheese do go together. This is part of their Taste Project series that involves opening the Recchiuti kitchen and tasting room to the public for a series of events in partnership with other local artisans of savory food and drink from beer and wine to cheese and mushrooms. I hope to make the Bread and Chocolate event in October, although both sessions are sold out. Maybe some more tasting events will open up-- or there will be a cancellation. Hope springs eternal.
This last session on Chocolate and Cheese was sold out, too, so I was glad to see Tamara Palmer's review in SF Weekly.
Michael Recchiuti and Doralice Handal (The Cheese Shop in Healdsburg) combined their expertise for a unique six-course pairing of chocolate and cheese.
Check out the courses for these very unique Pairings. Wish I had been there.
