"For many of the ingredients we consume, fermentation is a natural process which helps us develop aromas and flavours, and sometimes even contributes to preserving foods.
Cocoa happens to be a food which requires fermentation to bring out its full flavour potential in chocolate.
For this recipe, we used two ingredients which also undergo fermentation in their processing and production. This will help us bring out flavours of fermentation in our chocolate."
