Black cumin seed oil chocolate from Gavin Giles, a New Plymouth chocolatier, is a taste sensation!
Gavin has used Zenian strong black cumin seed oil and Zenian coconut sugar to craft a chocolate like you’ve never tasted before.
Gavin is a fully qualified pastry chef and chocolatier in the traditional craftsman chef mould.
When he called to order Zenian coconut sugar from me, I suggested that he have a crack at incorporating Zenian strong black cumin seed oil into his chocolate.
The strong black cumin seed oil gives this chocolate a hint of tang and subtle tastes of Asia and North Africa. Strong black cumin seed oil alone is a challenging proposition to swallow and best done with a chaser of honey.
Here,the complex flavours of fully processed cacao beans softens the peppery, pungent tastes of the black cumin seed oil.
