Great Stuff
Bought for truffle-making Christmas 2010. Wow, this is the best! I have always loved Valhrona, but glad I gave this a try. I planned to share/ gift give, as 500 truffles later, I've hardly used any......... Can't say enough great things about it. ....

I just received my first order of Pernigotti Cocoa. I have been a fan of Valharona Cocoa for years, but this may have replaced it as my Favorite! It has an incredible taste, I could smell it thru the double bagging. It is just GREAT! I would highly recommend it and for 2.2 lbs it really is quite a bargain!

The Top Cocoa Ever
first discovered this cocoa at Williams-Sonoma 20 years ago.....and have been using it ever since. Of course, now I buy it in large quantities! It makes a decadent hot chocolate, and I use it in brownies and Martha Stewart's one-bowl chocolate cake recipe. Really wonderful.....

Best Cocoa on the Planet
I have been using this exclusively for years now. I have a 'secret' brownie recipe that I make with this cocoa, syrup made from the cocoa and only the best ingredients. Everyone goes ga-ga over them. Syrup - so easy to make - anything that calls for cocoa I use this. Sometimes I mix just a touch into my coffee from a treat. If you have not tried this yet you need to. You WILL NOT be disappointed!!!

My drug of choice!
Many years ago, I got Pernigotti from Williams-Sonoma. When they stopped stocking it, I did a web search and found Chefshop, who have been supplying me with this rich, excellent cocoa for many years now! This stuff is excellent for both baking and cocoa!

Deep chocolate experience
This cocoa takes anything chocolate to an whole new level. The depth and smoothness is beyond any brand I have used, and I have used many. Intense chocolate experience, but not bitter or harsh. Be prepared to be asked for repeat performances!

ChefShop's Cocoa Powder

2.2 lbs/1 kg  (22% to 24% Cocoa Butter!) Italy

Formerly known as Pernigotti Cocoa Powder.

Get ready to make the best brownies, the best chocolate cake, and the best cookies known to any oven on the planet! This dark cocoa powder will make gelato and ice cream superb. 

Our Dutch process Cocoa Powder has 22% to 24% cocoa butter with real vanilla. (not vanillan)

As seen in Saveur Magazine (Saveur 100) and Chocolatier Magazine.

ingredients: cocoa powder, vanilla 

This dark, unsweetened, Dutch process cocoa powder is in a class unto itself. They have removed less fat from our cocoa (22-24% fat content), which results in a more intense and immediate chocolate flavor. This wonderful Dutch process cocoa powder has a touch of ground vanilla bean. Our regulars know what a great cocoa this is!

"I've used this cocoa for years ... I just love it. Williams Sonoma doesn't have it online (or in their stores).....so I picked you."" Thanks, D.

Preparation and General Uses
ChefShop Dutch Process Cocoa Powder is ready to satisfy in drinks and desserts, like a rich Chocolate Sorbet or a Super Dense Chocolate Brownies. Add ChefShop dark cocoa powder and sugar (to taste) to hot milk, and the aroma will transport you to breezy autumn days in the Piazza della Signoria.


Hot Cocoa Recipe

This is a classic hot cocoa recipe - perfect if made with a rich, high-fat, unsweetened cocoa powder like ChefShop Cocoa Powder, and rich gress-fed whole milk or half-and-half from your local dairy.

1/2 cup India Tree Super Fine Caster Sugar
3/4 cup ChefShop Cocoa Powder
2 1/2 cups half-and-half
1/4 teaspoons fine Trapani Sea Salt
1/2 teaspoon Heilala Vanilla Extract


1. Mix sugar, 1/2 & 1/2, cocoa powder and salt together in a saucepan. Stir over medium heat until mixture gets to just below boiling and the sugar has dissolved. Cook, stirring constantly, for 1 minute. Remove from heat and add vanilla. Blend and serve immediately.

Yield: 4 servings


Ordering Information
Please note that the cocoa comes in a "service pack." It is sealed in a thick plastic bag for production baking, and the bag attracts cocoa powder to the exterior during packaging. This is quite normal and will not affect the product.

Ingredients: Cocoa processed with Alkali, natural vanilla.
Prepared and Packaged on machines that may come in contact with tree nuts, eggs, milk, soy,
Keywords: Pernigotti, cocoa, dutch processed, Italy, ChefShop, Italian, Saveur Magazine
