Gotham Magazine: Chocolates and Mignardises at Per Se

Wednesday, December 7, 2011 3 No tags Permalink 0

Things I learned while writing this article for Gotham Magazine:

- At Per Se, chocolates follow the mignardises. 24 pieces in total, 8 each of dark chocolate, milk chocolate, and white chocolate. Presented in a custom-designed box.
- All the molded chocolates are made in the kitchens of Per Se, while the enrobed chocolates (fourth chocolate column from left) are done at Bouchon Bakery. Bouchon has a special machine just for enrobing chocolates.
- Expect to find both cream and water-based ganaches. Flavors like curry, cheesecake, and mojito are cream-based, while passionfruit and licorice are water-based.
- As for the most popular flavor? Maple-Pecan!
