Callebaut 38NV 70.4% Extra Bitter Dark Chocolate Easymelt Chips (Callets)
Callebaut is a Belgian couverture chocolate manufacturer.
Couverture chocolate is chocolate with a high cocoa butter content used by gourmet and culinary professionals.
Many professionals who use Callebaut couverture chocolate use it for its workability and typical taste, which has remained constant over the decades.
The company's core chocolate range is manufactured in Belgium from bean to chocolate according to traditional recipes.
Callebaut still applies the whole-bean roasting technique (instead of roasting cocoa kernels), as it did over 100 years ago.
This technique allows the preservation of all the flavours and aromatic oils within the cocoa husk and fully releases them in the chocolate.
Whole-bean roasting is nowadays often used by artisan, small-batch chocolate makers.
The Callebaut 38, bittersweet chocolate couverture is excellent for eating, enrobing cakes with a thick layer of chocolate, preparing dense chocolate fillings and ganache, and for piping chocolate decorations.
These callets are round drops of pure chocolate, easy to melt or temper, weigh, and store, and a divine taste in recipes calling for chunks of chocolate.
The callets are made using 100% pure cocoa butter and a dash of vanilla that rounds off the taste with a slight sweet hint.
Pure chocolate requires tempering to obtain a high gloss for chocolate making.
72.4% Cocoa solids.
