We know that chocolate can be paired beautifully with caramel treats and fresh fruits, but what about with foods we eat almost every day?
We spoke to food stylist, blogger and author, Katelyn (Williams) Allegra about weird chocolate combinations we never really thought of that actually work, and this is what she said.
Dark chocolate and basil
I absolutely adore dark chocolate and basil together. If you make truffles, infuse the cream with fresh basil, then strain it and pour it over the chocolate. Allow to set and then roll into balls. It makes such an interesting after-dinner treat.
Watermelon and chocolate
There is a Sicilian dish gelo di melone which is a watermelon soup thickened with cornflour, sweetened with sugar, spiced with cinnamon and grated with chocolate. It’s a strange combination but works so well.
Chocolate and tomato
