Valrhona has been producing the world’s finest chocolate in the small village of Tain L’Hermitage, France since 1922 – even going as far as to open its own plantations. It’s a top-quality chocolate for a truly professional finish and is made from the finest cocoa beans with a top provenance from Venezuela, and the Dominican Republic.
You can easily buy Valrhona chocolate online. While it costs a little more, it tastes more intense than other chocolate and gives the best results. I use it to create all of my chocolate concoctions from chocolate soufflés to chocolate spheres. Why not try your hand at the latter using this recipe: http://www.frenchchefathome.com/mascarpone-cream-filled-chocolate-spheres/.

Chef’s tip: The best way is to get the most out of your chocolate is to heat it very slowly over a bain marie
