The Jacques Pépin Foundation has partnered with Woodford Reserve, the leading super-premium American whiskey, and Jacques Torres Chocolate on a limited-edition signature box of bonbons.
Chef Jacques Torres created a smooth and silky ganache using the flavorful pairing of 60% Dark Belgian chocolate with Woodford Reserve Double Oaked Bourbon. The dark chocolate has floral and vanilla notes that complement the bourbon’s rich flavor profile with dark caramel, nutty and spice notes. Each box contains 12 bonbons.
