In honor of the recent World Pistachio Day, Nestle Damak & Tasting Table hosted an evening of chocolate & pistachios. I am a HUGE chocolate lover so I was definitely intrigued to taste the newest addition to the Nestle family, Damak straight from Turkey.
Damak is a Turkish premium chocolate brand with more than 80 years of rich, delicious pistachio chocolate history. Each bar has a combination of buttery, crunchy pistachios & silky smooth chocolate. They come available in fine or dark chocolate. The chocolates were amazing. They were full of flavor & smelled delicious. I couldn’t stop eating them. The pistachios used in the Damak chocolate bars are sourced from the Gaziantep region of Turkey which boasts an ideal climate for growing prized nuts. It is considered the best place in the world to find the highest quality pistachios.
Tasting Table’s executive chef David Kirschner curated a menu of roasted leg of lamb, Turkish chicken skewers and so much more. Everything was delicious with the touch of the Damak chocolate & pistachio combination. I had no idea that such delicacies could be created. I was very impressed & glad that I came on an empty stomach!
Nestle Damak chocolate bars are available at select retailers nationwide. The retail price is $2.49. For more information please visit www.nestledamak.com
