Red Hook Brooklyn-based chocolatier Raaka Chocolate sources the finest organic cacao beans they can get their hands on, and transforms them into sublime bars with elements like Smoked Chai Tea and Ghost Pepper to enhance the naturally complex flavor of each bean. The team at Saxelby Cheese has dutifully tasted through our many cheeses to find the perfect pairings for Raaka’s bars. As we like to say, it’s tough work, but somebody’s gotta do it! We’ve come up with some fabulous NEW pairings, and we can’t wait to share them with you.
