When we heard Eric Ripert and Anthony Bourdain were collaborating on a chocolate bar, we didn't bat an eye. Of course the BFFs were working on chocolate together — there is no manlier bonding activity.
Anyway, more details about the "Good & Evil" bar have finally been released, thanks to Eater, and it turns out the bar will cost some $18.
Ripert and Bourdain collaborated with European chocolatier Christopher Curtin, creating a 72 percent cacao bar made with cacao from the Pure Nacional tree (a rare tree that was considered extinct for a century) in Peru.
The chocolate contains cocoa nibs from the beans as well, creating the "evil" bitter tones of the chocolate. "This duality mirrors the connection between Ripert, who only sees the 'good' in food, and Bourdain, who embraces the 'evil' of the dark cocoa nibs," the press release says.
The bar will be available starting tomorrow on eclatchocolate.com and other retail stores, so you can get your Ripert/Bourdain fix via chocolate ASAP, just in case you're missing No Reservations already.
