Day 8

The inspiration of our ginger caramel chocolate comes from Vietnam, where the savoury dishes would still have a complex mixture of savoury and sweetness. And one such savoury dish is Ga Kho Gung - caramelised ginger chicken. Here's a recipe for this dish:

 

Obviously our ginger caramel is not made in the same way but this is an insight into how different dishes inspire us to make some of our chocolates. Instead of using stem ginger or raw ginger pieces, we use freshly-grated ginger juice to add to the caramel, to give it a more refreshing taste. This chocolate has been in our collection since we started in 2013, and the recipe hasn't changed over the years. Whilst we knew this was a good chocolate, we never thought it would be appreciated by food judges at competition, so imagine our joy when this chocolate won us a Great Taste Award 2-star in 2016!
