Friis-Holm – Chuno Triple Turned

More articles by »
Written by: Alex Rast

A bar that really ought to be considered as one half of a pair, the other being the Double Turned: same source, different processing. With these bars Friis-Holm is exploring a dimension of chocolate previously unrevealed: the effect different processing at the source can have on the end result. Indeed, the venture opens up new possibilities for growers to experiment with a variety of processing techniques and styles, although it is to be suspected any one grower will probably select one final method. But this is breaking new ground in chocolate, and with a bean source equally fresh and (almost) unknown the possibilities are endless. A chocolate that pushes the envelope in terms of interpretation.
