Ghana and Cocoa
With a cocoa heritage dating back to 1879, Ghana is renowned for both the quality and quantity of its cocoa, the main ingredient in chocolate. The traditional method of fermenting cocoa beans in plantain and banana leaves instills a unique flavor while the country’s quality control system provides consistency.
After over a decade of travel through the various corners of Africa, I distilled the essences of the African continent and now offer them to you in Ghanaian chocolate. Taste the subtle infusion of the local bounty – teas, tisanes, and complex spice blends.
These flavors represent the beautiful patchwork that is Africa’s culinary heritage, a chef-scripted love story to our continent in every bite. I hope you enjoy my interpretation.
Midunu Chocolates are artisanal handcrafted chocolates. Made with Ghanaian cocoa, they feature the flavors and essences of Africa. Taste the subtle infusion of the bounty of the African continent – fruits, spices, coffee, teas, and tisanes. These complex flavor profiles embody the beautiful patchwork of Africa’s culinary heritage.
The inspiration for the chocolates comes from different parts of the continent, reflected in the name given to each truffle. We have named the truffles after different African women who have inspired the truffles and are culinary custodians throughout the continent.
