In honor of World Chocolate Day, some top Israeli pastry chefs have created delicious recipes filled with a lot of chocolate. Writers at Israel21c tell us more:
July 7 is World Chocolate Day. In honor of the occasion, the head pastry chefs of the Waldorf Astoria Jerusalem and the Tel Aviv Hilton devised special desserts bursting with chocolatey goodness (and calories, too, but who’s counting?).
Before we get to the recipes, we should emphasize that although Israel isn’t a cacao-growing country, its chocolate industry is robust. Local chocolatiers win international awards and Israeli chocolate confections are in demand around the world. According to the Foreign Trade Administration, 28 Israeli companies exported $10 million worth of chocolate products to 42 countries in 2015.
Chew on that while you tempt your sweet tooth with these chocolate confections.
