The beguiling aroma of Chris’ Heritage Goat Cheese & Black Truffle dip is the starting point for a true celebration of the senses.

In the world of food, there are few items as aromatic as truffles. Delicious and alluring, truffles have long been associated with indulgence – with good reason – they’re rare and hard to find. The aroma of truffles is due to the pheromone, androstenone. Known as ‘the bliss molecule’, it is also the hormone responsible for releasing mood heightening compounds in our brain related to pleasure, attraction and arousal. No wonder truffles have long been considered an aphrodisiac!

Now Chris’ have blended truffles with another of life’s treats – goat cheese, to make a creamy, sumptuous dip that really is a true celebration of the senses.

Perfect partners

The delicate and slightly tart flavour of the goat cheese is perfectly complemented by generous rich black truffle pieces, combining to create a truly decadent offering. The Goat Cheese & Black Truffle dip includes a sachet of black pepper for garnish, and like the entire Heritage Range, comes in a reusable terracotta pot. This unique dip is ideal as part of a spring platter with lashings of thinly sliced salami, fresh basil leaves, juicy cherry tomatoes and crunchy crostini sticks. 

Wine Selectors Wine Educator Adam Walls thinks Chris’ Heritage Goat Cheese & Black Truffle dip’s perfect partner would be an aromatic white wine. 

“I’d serve up a Sauvignon Blanc,” he says. “But not just any Sauv Blanc, I think you’d need something richer to handle the intensity of the truffle, so opt for a barrel fermented (Fumé style) either as a straight Sauvignon Blanc or in a Sauvignon Blanc Semillon (SBS) blend. These wines would still have the acidity to match the cheese with the added complexity of the barrel age being the perfect foil for the truffles.” 

Indulgent dishes

With such a richly flavoured dip like this, you can also bring an aromatic indulgence to almost any favourite recipe.

Whisk two teaspoons of Chris’ Heritage Goat Cheese & Black Truffle dip with three eggs and three tablespoons of cream for deliciously rich scrambled eggs. 

For a sumptuous dinner, stir through two large tablespoons of the dip into a mushroom risotto about two minutes before serving up. Adam recommends pairing this earthy, comfort-food dish with a fragrant red wine such as Yarra Valley Pinot Noir or Barossa Grenache.

Or how about spreading a generous tablespoon of the dip over a homemade pizza base and topping with over-baked potato slices, thyme and slivered almonds. Cook the pizza and then drizzle a decadent sauce made from two tablespoons of Goat Cheese & Black Truffle dip mixed with warm water. Serve this with a medium-weighted Sangiovese for a truly memorable evening of food and wine.

Haigh’s the Bean to Bar Process
Haigh’s Chocolates source the world’s best cocoa beans to make their famed range of premium chocolate. Often referred to as ‘the food of the Gods’, chocolate is one of the culinary world’s true marvels and it has delighted mankind for centuries. The Olmec people in the southern part of what is now Mexico, the Mayan civilisations and the Aztecs all enjoyed cocoa before introducing it to the Spanish at the start of the 16th century. The actual process of taking the fruit of the cocoa pod and turning it into chocolate has changed very little from those ancient times. Technology has seen advancements in the processing, but the overall process is essentially the same. The bean is removed from the cocoa pod, sun-dried and then transported to a factory where it goes through a series of processes before eventually forming a silky, smooth liquid chocolate – the perfect base to make a range of delicious chocolate products. The best ingredients
At the heart of this process is the fact that the best beans make the best chocolate. Haigh’s Chocolates source premium quality cocoa beans from the best cocoa growing regions around the world.  In 2014, Haigh’s was the first Australian owned chocolate manufacturer to achieve international UTZ certification for the use of ethically and sustainably farmed cocoa beans with 80% of its range UTZ certified. As it endeavours to achieve 100% certification, Haigh’s still leads the way for sustainable production with a supply chain spanning cocoa-growing countries from West Africa to South America.
Haigh’s Chocolates not only sources premium cocoa beans, they also process them in their own factory to make their range of premium chocolate products, which they then sell exclusviely in their own retail stores. This dedication to a true bean-to-bar process means Haigh’s can guarantee the utmost freshness and quality of their chocolate. Venture into a Haigh’s store in Adelaide, Melbourne, Sydney, Canberra or shop online, and sample their delicious products, which includes their limited release Single Origin range. Like wine grapes, cocoa beans have flavour characteristics unique to variety and area of origin. Haigh’s Chocolates Single Origin is made from cocoa beans sourced from a single location.
