Via The Huffington Post, which in turn is getting info via Eater National, we're learning that Anthony Bourdain and Eric Ripert have debuted a "Good vs. Evil" chocolate bar on the same day that their "Good vs. Evil" show comes to Bass Hall.
The bar, created in partnership with chocolatier Christopher Curtin of Eclat Chocolate, is described in a release (reprinted in whole by Eater National) as "[capturing] the essence of the two iconic chefs' personalities while telling the story of one of the rarest cacao trees on earth: a prized variety called Pure Nacional that was thought to be extinct for nearly a century before being rediscovered growing on small isolated farms within Peru, the only place in the world where it is found." (If you scroll through Ripert's Twitter feed, you can find out more about the bar's evolution.) According to Eater, the bar made its debut at this weekend's New York Chocolate Show.
Wanna try it? You can order it here, but be aware that this 2.6-oz., 72 percent cacao bar will cost you 18 bucks. Which would buy a lot of what Bourdain has been tweeting about on the duo's Texas swing.
Bourdain and Ripert's 'Good vs. Evil' show will be at 8 p.m. Friday at Bass Hall. They'll rib each other for about an hour, and then take questions. I chatted with Bourdain a couple of weeks ago, and you can read that here. More recently, The Dallas Observer's Scott Reitz talked with Ripert, and you can read that here.
