I have heard a rumor that there is a chocolate consomme recipe in the food arts. is this true? If so does anyone have the issue and possibly share?
Also if a dark chocolate ganache cake can be made could a white version be made? with flavors. I will be experimenting soon.

April 2005 I think.

Ganache can be made with white chocolate. I’ve seen several recipes calling for this, including cakes.

Consommé is a name for clarified fish or meat broth, so traditionally it would not exist. There are many recipes for chocolate dessert soups. Served hot or cold they can be quite nice. I am sure you can find some that have gone the savory route also. You would probably have more luck looking in the cultures closer to the equator for them though.

There are indeed recipes for a consomm√© with chocolate as a seasoning. I prefer not to stick to recipes but rather techniques, and here imo it’s quite simple, just have to incorporate a very-very small amount of dark chocolate slowly.
