Chocolate with olive oil: discover the flavor of this powerful duo

Olive oil is one of the most versatile foods in world cuisine and is seen on tables and restaurants as an accompaniment to savory dishes and salads. But in recent years, another combination has started to appear: sweets with olive oil.

At first, it may seem strange. Olive oil has aromas and flavors that balance between light and intense. Chocolate is one of the most popular desserts out there.

This combination, known by few people, results in a unique sensory experience. For this reason, patisseries in Europe and the United States are using chocolate and olive oil as the main ingredients in cakes and sweets.

Pairing Chocolate with olive oil

It is a fact that olive oil is a product that can be paired with different dishes, resulting in varied flavors. With chocolate, this is no different.

Normally, people don't think about combining both foods, but when they experience this sensory experience, they end up being surprised.

In relation to olive oil and chocolate, the contrast between sweet and bitter ends up creating a new, unexpected flavor.

In addition to serving as an accompaniment, olive oil has also been used to make chocolate creamier in preparations, including ganache.

Working on pairing chocolate with olive oil is a chance for people to try new combinations and discover unique sensations. However, there is another reason to think about this union: health.
