There is always someone who will look at you when enjoying a glass of wine and dark chocolate. One of my favorite chocolates are Forteza from Cortés. Cortes was the very first chocolate of my childhood. Yes, I know it was when I was over 6 yrs. Old. Chocolate and I had a very rough beginning. I was alla to some debris left in the process from cocoa to chocolate. In my prehistoric knowledge of chocolate, that hot chocolate and queso de papa from my abuela Sole’s kitchen had the most amazing smell ever.
So, I made it to that sad part of my life, enjoying every chocolate I couldn’t take before, on the precise moment. Since I have taste knowledge, I have always love very dark, tanic and sometimes bitter dark chocolate. So I have tasted some good Cabernets from Napa and Chile with chocolate. Also, chiantis, tempranillos –like the one I’m pairing with the Forteza Milk chocolate as I write this paragraph, a pretty dark milk one– and so many others. Just for the thrill of tasting!
It is not only about this chocolate, the Seis de Luberri Cosecha 2014 –not even a crianza from Spain, just a more simple one– goes well with the chocolate and the weed.
Tonight I have chosen a new hybrid Critical Kush. It is a very high one in THC, so it works perfect for me. The flavor of this kush is more terroir like. I really mean earthy, creamier and spiced weed in my tasting buds. With the chocolate goes very well. The cannabis enhances the some sweet flavors of the chocolate. It shows the spicy notes of the wine. So it is no big deal, a good hybrid, a good table wine and a good hybrid go together.
There is a reason why they match so perfectly. There are similar components in all 3 that work wonders on your brain. Let me keep this simple, the 3 together have a blast “on your feel good part of the brain”.
So keeping that in mind, you can work on how to pair foods, spirits and cannabis for you well being.
Let me add a disclaimer: You must be at home, relax, do not operated any machinery or social app, and do this in moderation. Be responsible with yourself and others.
