Bar of the Week: Olive and Sinclair's Salt and Pepper

You hear a lot about salt and chocolate; also about chocolate and peppers of the spicy variety.  But what about salt and good old black pepper?  That classic combo hasn't really shown up in chocolate bars...until now.

Nashville-based Olive and Sinclair is the South's first artisan bean-to-bar maker, specializing in stone-ground chocolate bars.  They have a knack for pairing their chocolates with match-made-in-heaven spices, such as our bar of the week, a richly textured 67% dark chocolate from Ghana sprinkled with kosher salt and freshly cracked black pepper. 

Can't imagine taking the salt shaker and pepper mill to your own favorite chocolate?  Then be sure to stop by on Saturday, August 20th, to taste a chocolate that's at once strangely familiar and totally new.
