Our Basil Pistachio confection combines Basil, the king of herbs, crushed California pistachio, butter, cream, and imported Belgian white chocolate into an extraordinary ivory-hued ganache. We finish the piece in Belgian dark chocolate to round off the natural sweetness of the ganache with a counter-tone of darkness.
This piece was specifically created on the request of one of our customers, and we're happy we undertook the challenge! We think you will be too.
The word basil comes from the Greek, βασιλεύς which means king. According to some histories, the herb was originally found to have been growing over the place St. Constantine and Helena found a piece of the True Cross.
Basil Pistachio Tasting Notes: Beginning: Dark chocolate, hints of butter, nutty sweetness in the ganache Middle: Rich creaminess, additional notes of pistachio sweetness withh the underying complexity of cream and herb. Crushed pistachio adds texture. Finish: Fairly short, with the dark chocolate 'catching up' to the pistachio. Basil notes increase, then fall back into the ganache.
will be happy to special order to meet your needs!
