Chocolate from Thomas Keller and Armando Manni

Thomas Keller and Armando Manni
At K+M, we apply our unique chocolate making process to single-origin cocoa beans combined with a small amount of MANNI organic extra-virgin olive oil to create a new dimension in bean-to-bar chocolate.
No chocolate tastes better or is better for you.  Has the antioxidant benefits from both olive oil and dark chocolate

When Thomas Keller says he's built a better chocolate bar, it's worth tasting the results. The multiple Michelin-starred chef (The French Laundry, Per Se, Bouchon) spent the past five years collaborating with Italian olive oil master Armando Manni to produce K+M Extravirgin Chocolate. With fine cocoa beans sourced directly from farmers around the world, and a signature recipe using olive oil instead of traditional cocoa butter, K+M aims to be delicious but also healthy, given the significant antioxidant health benefits. And no, you don't taste the olive oil. As an obsessive chocolate devotee (who happens to be married to a professional chocolatier), I was thrilled to learn about Chef Keller's goal to engineer great tasting chocolate. To learn more, I reached out for this exclusive interview with Keller, Manni and K+M Chocolatier Chi Bui. --- read more
