AUSTIN, Texas (PRWEB) February 23, 2021
Award-winning Delysia Chocolatier, based in Austin, Texas released its new “Taste of the South” chocolate truffle collection for Spring 2021. The Taste of the South chocolate truffle collection creates nostalgia with a luxurious nine-piece assortment that captures the unique flavors of a southern meal in chocolate – complete with drinks, side dishes, entrees, and dessert. Taking inspiration from beloved foods from Kentucky, Tennessee, Georgia, the Carolinas, Mississippi, Louisiana, and Texas, Delysia Chocolatier has assembled an assortment of flavors that conjure down-home cooking for generations of southerners. By mixing sweet, salty, and savory ingredients, the chocolatier has emulated dishes that have become classic symbols of the American South.
“I’m originally from the northeast, and when I moved to the southern United States, I discovered a variety of dishes which intrigued me,” said Delysia Chocolatier owner and chef, Nicole Patel. “I wanted to capture the rich array of delicious classic southern flavors in chocolate form for people who love them as much as I do. I dedicate the Taste of the South chocolate truffle collection to everyone who is craving a moment of southern bliss and something sweet.”
The richly layered Taste of the South chocolate truffles are handcrafted with the finest regional ingredients that will inspire daydreams of cicadas humming in oak trees, the ephemeral scent of honeysuckle, and the sight of fireflies illuminating warm nights. Capturing the best flavors of a region that stretches from the lush Shenandoah Mountains to the rich bayou of the Mississippi River delta and onto the red rocks of the Southwest deserts, Delysia Chocolatier’s new Taste of the South collection pays homage to the diverse culinary traditions of the South.
Imagine, relaxing on the front porch, the warm glow of twilight in the distance, while sipping on a spiked version of a southern classic with Delysia Chocolatier’s Sweet tea vodka chocolate truffle. The brand’s Cajun fried chicken chocolate truffle is equally evocative, inspired by the crisp and spicy breading on this classic southern entree, infused into creamy milk chocolate seasoned with a hint of Louisiana spices. For dessert, chocolate lovers can savor a quintessential Southern sweet in Delysia Chocolatier’s Hummingbird cake chocolate truffle. Layers of milk chocolate are melded with banana puree, spiced with cinnamon and vanilla, then studded with pineapple and pecans. This decadent truffle is topped with a layer of cream cheese white chocolate, just like the icing on the cake.
