I love the combination of dark chocolate and hot pepper. Any recommendations for desserts that combine the two successfully? How about savory dishes?
I don’t share your taste but remember that chilies are added to chocolate for the flavor they impart, not the heat. And while there are a handful of savory dishes around the world that incorporate chocolate (Mexican mole and a Sicilian pasta sauce come to mind), they are not chocolaty tasting – the chocolate adds a nuance to the flavor and provides a slight thickening in both the cases I mentioned.
