Black Sesame Paste Black Sesame Paste

Black sesame seeds when toasted and made into a paste have this wonderful rich, nutty taste and a smooth feel! (Be sure to mix thoroughly as the oil will separate) Add castor (superfine) sugar and mix in to make a sweet paste. The granules don’t really dissolve, instead they give little balls of texture to tickle your senses with hits of sweetness.

Or add the honey of your choice to add a new level of complexity. The flavor of your honey will come through and can really add a wonderful twist to a pastry. Make your own Sesame Balls, spread it on toast or eat it with a spoon! It’s a food that can change your day or maybe the color of your hair…

The Best

"I use ChefShop Cocoa Powder to make what my family calls my "famous" molten lava cakes. I'm told they are of restaurant quality. But I also use it to make my own personal hot cocoas. I often give it a Mexican twist with a dash of cinnamon and cayenne. Rich!"
-- Susie

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!!!"
