CHOCOLATE — is a typically sweet
preparation of Theobroma cacao seeds.
ROCK — in geology is a naturally occurring solid aggregate of
one or more minerals.
The two elements come together in this collaboration between
a product designer and a chef
and create a fusion between food and design.
CHOCOLATE ROCKS — form a new experience that starts with shape and results in taste. Biting into a rock creates natural tension between the things we are told by our instincts and by our brain. This adds a new layer of awareness to the eating of chocolate that emphasizes everything you sense and taste. To enhance this experience we make natural pigments out of dried fruits and vegetables that give an extra layer of unexpected taste and color. We play with the perception that color gives to food by mixing these pigments.
