“… of unrivaled flavour, so that whoever tastes it seems to have arrived at the archetype, the absolute, and that the chocolate produced elsewhere – albeit the most celebrated – is its adulteration, corruption…”
Modica chocolate has inspired writers and poets for centuries and still today, with its simplicity, it manages to combine tradition and innovation in infinite variations, processes and combinations.
We at Bottega27 have gathered some of the best artisan chocolatiers on our online shop to give all of you, whether you are in Italy or abroad, the opportunity to taste these Sicilian gastronomic excellences.
MODICANO CHOCOLATE: FOR TRUE CONNOISSEURS
Modica Chocolate owes its granular consistency to the traditional processing at low temperatures (45-50 degrees), which custom comes from an ancient Aztec recipe which, faithful to this type of processing, avoids the complete dissolution of the sugar grains.
Thanks to this particular process, while tasting the best dark chocolate in the world, one perceives the almost clear distinction between the sweetness of the sugar crystals and the bitterness of the cocoa mass.
The mixture, deriving from highly prized cocoa beans, is then worked with the addition of natural aromas and local spices to create chocolate bars with extraordinary flavours, among which stand out: chocolate with chilli pepper, chocolate with Trapani, thyme chocolate, bee honey chocolate, ginger chocolate, Sicilian pistachio chocolate, cinnamon chocolate, vanilla chocolate, lemon chocolate, Sicilian orange chocolate, rum chocolate, extra virgin olive oil chocolate... and many other curious and super delicious flavours.
