After pushing through a laborious chocolate-making process, bloomed chocolate is generally an unwelcome sign of failure. Yet, by it’s very definition, I sort of love how hope can be found even in the face of defeat.
bloom: to flourish or thrive.
With each new batch, bloom is what we’re striving to avoid in our chocolate and what we aspire to achieve for ourselves as makers.
Success and failure are two sides of the same coin.
There’s a kind of poetic justice to that, don’t you think?
