Craftsmanship and generosity

10 kilos of nuts and dried fruit for 14 kilos of chocolate. Read on to discover La Maison du Chocolat's generous and gourmet recipe for its chocolate mendiants. Nuts and dried fruit are carefully chosen and painstakingly prepared: hazelnuts and almonds are toasted, pistachios are gently roasted, raisins and candied orange peel are washed and dried. Everything is mixed well together and tempered at 30°C: these ingredients are ready to be incorporated into the couverture chocolate, without any change in temperature. Now it's all a question of the speed and dexterity of the 6 chocolatiers as they work on marble surfaces. The entire mixture is spread out to a depth of 1.5 cm, ensuring total uniformity of the fruit and nuts before the chocolate sets.
