Chocolate Salami with a Bergamot Aroma

Chocolate Salami with a Bergamot Aroma

Method

  • Preheat oven to 160* C (320* F) Fan.
  • Place the almonds in a small baking pan and bake for 10 minutes, until toasted, golden, crunchy and aromatic. Mix 2-3 times while baking.
  • When ready, transfer to a bowl and set aside to cool.
  • While the almonds are toasting, melt the dark chocolate couverture along with the butter in a bain marie or a microwave. Use a large bowl.
  • When the chocolate is ready, add the remaining ingredients in the following order and stir after each addition. Begin with the cookies, then add the almonds, the zest and the peppercorns. Add the white chocolate last so that the mixture is cool enough not to melt it.  
  • Cover with plastic wrap and refrigerate for 1 hour.
  • When ready, remove the wrap and cut in half.
  • Wearing disposable gloves transfer one half to a clean sheet of plastic and shape in to a salami that is 2 cm thick.
  • Wrap tightly in the plastic wrap and make it as smooth and circular as possible.
  • Tie the ends securely and refrigerate for a few hours or overnight, until it becomes firm.
  • Repeat the same process with the other half of the mixture.
  • When ready to serve, dust a baking pan with some icing sugar, remove the chocolate salami from the refrigerator, remove plastic wrap and roll it in the icing sugar until completely coated.
  • For an even more realistic looking salami, tie with some kitchen twine at intervals, just like they do with real salami!
  • I decided to add almonds, white chocolate and cookies that are white in color so they can resemble the little bits of fat in real salami. I also used red peppercorns that are also used in real salami.

Tip

If you cannot find bergamots, add the zest of any other citrus fruit.
