Gran Saman is bold, earthy and complex, with the most pronounced, flavorful bitterness and refreshing acidity of all of El Rey's dark chocolates. Wild and adventurous, it is noticeably stronger, intensely full of flavors and less fluid than El Rey's other formulations, and made with only premium Venezuelan cacao.
Because of its great viscosity Gran Saman melts less readily and is not recommended for other tempering applications. Bakers can use for sorbets, fillings for pastries, brownies, and other baked goods. For pastry chefs, make dark chocolate cheesecake with caramel sauce. Use for dark chocolate fudge. Chocoholics; dip any sort of sweet fruit in this. Pair with a softer, fruitier red wine like Merlot, Pinot Noir, or Malbec.
