Stainer Peperoncino Schotch Bonnet Con Rum


That's a mouthful, isn't it? "Stainer Peperoncino Schotch Bonnet Con Rum" There's a nice typo on the front cover, since I"ve only ever heard of Scotch Bonnet, not Schotch.

Andrea Stainer is an Italian chocolatier, and this is an awesome chocolate. Strong rum and strong hot pepper. Not make-you-sweat hot, but plenty hot for me.

Out of all the flavored chocolates I've tasted recently, I generally prefer the chocolates with pepper. There's something about the combination of dark chocolate and hot pepper that appeals to me, more than, say, chocolate and melon.

Located in Pontremoli, Stainer is another one of those great chocolatiers in Tuscany. When I do manage a visit to Tuscany, I'll have to plan time to visit several of these place, Stainer included.
