have their own chocolate bar (with the help of Eclat chocolatier Christopher Curtin)? Well, their "Good & Evil bar" from Eclat Chocolates ($18), which is made with extremely rare Peruvian cacao beans and studded with nibs, will be officially available this Friday. Here's part of the PR description:
Good & Evil captures the essence of the two iconic chefs’ personalities while telling the story of one of the rarest cacao trees on earth: a prized variety called Pure Nacional that was thought to be extinct for nearly a century before being rediscovered growing on small isolated farms within Peru, the only place in the world where it is found. This duality mirrors the connection between Ripert, who only sees the “good” in food, and Bourdain, who embraces the “evil” of the dark cocoa nibs. Together with Curtin, they hope Good & Evil will give everyone who tries it a sublime taste experience of the world’s rarest cacao beans.
The bar will make its "official" debut at the NY Chocolate Show on Friday.
