The AMANO Blog One of the things I have always found most wonderful about chocolate is how unlike it is from so many other foods: it reaches in and touches a person’s soul. Few foods do that, and none that I’m aware of do so so completely. Because of this, I have had some incredible experiences. People of all walks of life tell me what a profound impact our chocolate has had on them and how much they love that experience. (or love the chocolate?) The same goes for some well-known chefs whom I have admired from afar for years.
Japanese Sea Salt & Cocoa Nibs
When planning this bar, I reached out to my good friend Mark Bitterman (of Bitterman Salts). He is a great guy and perhaps the country’s leading expert on exotic salts. We chose this beautiful Japanese sea salt that is hand made from ocean water pumped from the ocean’s depths where the sea water is ultra pure. The cocoa we use to make the milk chocolate comes from Ocumare, Venezuela (one of my favorites) and the nibds are made with cocoa from Ecuador. You will love this very special milk chocolate.
