Chocolate truffles are a closely protected Swiss tradition, and the tonka truffle is one glorious example – a dark chocolate treat flavoured with the rich ‘vanilla and almond’ sweetness of the tonka bean. The tonka bean is becoming ever more popular in the world of adventurous cuisine, making the tonka truffle a perfect choice for this celebration of the Swiss tradition of truffles. Here pieces of truffle lend their infinitely smooth texture to an intensely flavoured chocolate ice cream that is also textured with the contrasting crunch of cocoa-bean pieces. A pleasure for any lover of dark chocolate.

Enjoy the pleasure of ice cream with no artificial additives or colours.

 

Chocolate

More about chocolate...
After washing, the cocoa beans are roasted. This process is vital for first-class chocolate. The moisture in the beans is reduced and their colour is intensified. This allows the roasted flavours to develop.

Did you know: Roasted cocoa beans taste almost like coffee, just softer (because of the cocoa butter) and with no fragrance.

 

Tonka Truffle

More about tonka truffles...
The tonka bean comes from a tropical tree native to South America (Venezuela, Guyana, Brazil, etc.), and is rich in fibre, magnesium and zinc. From the same tree, we also obtain a fine-grained hardwood: teak. The tonka bean is an elongated black bean which is harvested once it has ripened, then soaked in rum and dried for several months in order to fully release its flavour.

Today this spice is popular with chefs and pastry chefs, who use it to flavour their salty and sweet recipes: cream soups, purées, marinades, creams and desserts, as well as cocktails… Only a very small quantity of the grated bean is needed to produce a bewitching vanilla, almond and caramel aroma. 

Did you know: The tonka bean is called "Cumaru" in Brazil and "Sarrapia" in Venezuela. It is harvested from the trees from February to April and obtained after crushing the exterior nut and pulp with a stone tool. Tonka beans are also renowned for their aroma among perfumers who use them in their creations instead of musk. Not particularly well-known in Europe, the Tonka bean still remains a rare spice.
