Shiso Sesame Bar


Shiso Sesame bar; Black sesame tahini white chocolate with a (garden grown) shiso white chocolate swirl, toasted sesame seeds, a dusting of more shiso and Jacobsen’s sea salt.

I have to be honest and say I was a little disappointed at the little bubbles on many of them. I try not to dwell when I get frustrated, instead I attempt to funnel my energy into finding the good in whatever experience that has caused the frustration, or figure out how to avoid it in the future. Being that it’s a delicate flavor, I crammed as much shiso into the swirl as I could...and I think it made it thicker and thus more prone to bubbles. I figured the sesame would fill in the cracks and it didn’t. When you are making things by hand and you are in a process of learning by doing sometimes these things happen. So I’m embracing the Japanese concept of wabi sabi in this decidedly Japanese flavored bar. All looks aside, it’s darn tasty.
