30.11.18 ​Chocolate truffles with Balsamic Vinegar Recipe
NEWS Recipe Chocolate truffles are not only a Valentin's day dessert! You can enjoy them all year round! And they are the simplest of candy to make: you'll need only cream, chocolate, and a little bit of time to create this delicious dessert. But, as usually, we added a special ingredient to our version: Traditional Balsamic Vinegar of Modena!

Ingredients 

300 gr of dark chocolate, finely minced, 60 ml of cream, 4 tablespoons of Traditional Balsamic Vinegar of Modena, 70 gr  of cocoa powder

Procedure 

Start by melting the dark chocolate and the cream in a water bath; then pour the melted chocolate into a small bowl. At this point add Traditional Balsamic Vinegar.  Finally put the chocolate in the fridge for 1 hour, to let it cool.

After 1 hour remove the chocolate from the fridge and let it rest at room temperature for 3 hours, until it is hard but workable.  At this point make small balls using your fingers.

When the small balls are ready place them on a sheet of baking paper. Then put the cocoa powder in a bowl. Place 8 truffles at a time in the cocoa and cover them well, then place them back on the baking paper. When all chocolate truffles are well covered with cocoa powder arrange them on a tray or in an airtight container to enjoy them whenever you want!

04.04.19 Balsamic Vinegar Original and some tips!

Real Balsamic Vinegar and many more tips!
Our suggestions are useful if you aren’t sure about the better way to serve your culinary creations. Let’s start!

Tip 1: Try not to cover the entire plate. When we prepare the dish, we usually tend to cover all the plate, without leaving any empty space. However, it would be better to dispose not too much food on the surface of the plate, leaving some empty space.

Tip 2: Do not place the food in the center of the plate, try to be creative and use perspectives.

Tip 3: Height. The plate must have 3 dimensions and the height is the dimension which is often missing. For instance, you could place the side dish not on the side of the main course but on top of it: everything will change!

Tip 4: Use toppings! For many first and second courses we recommend you the Original Balsamic Vinegar glaze, its characteristic sweet and sour flavor is able to enhance a great variety of dishes. Check the recipe of the real Balsamic Vinegar glaze on our blog!

Tip 5: Be creative! Let yourself be guided by inspiration! A good-looking dish is in part determined by the rules but also by the creativity of the chef!

These were L-O’s tips to plate up the perfect dish! 

Un saluto da Modena
