Favored by professional pastry chefs for its intense bittersweet character, E. Guittard Cocoa Rouge has a rich, deep red color, robust fudge-like flavor and full chocolate essence. It's ideal in baked goods such as cakes and pastries where the intense, yet subtle cocoa flavor provides the perfect complement to other ingredients. Made of cocoa processed in the Dutch tradition. Made in USA. 8 oz.
I have used so many cocoa powders in my baking and this has become my favorite. The flavor is absolutely divine, exquisite, sublime. I do a lot of semi-professional baking and make a lot of buttercream icings and this cocoa makes an unbelievable chocolate icing. It is on the pricy side, but worth it. Therefore I use it in recipes or baked goods that need to make an impression (and it does)
I don't know where I got the first one of these. I never would have guessed it is made in Burlingame, CA! It is unbelievably good sprinkled on ice cream or used in homemade hot cocoa. Chocolate lovers: you must try this! Mocha lovers, too.
Can I use this in recipes that calls specifically for Dutch-processed cocoa? Would it have the same taste/affect?
