Spanish Hot Smoked Pimenton Truffle

January 7, 2012

Smoked pimenton or paprika is one of the defining spices in Spanish foods.  Everything it touches tints it red with a smoky sweet flavor.  It is most ubiquitously recognized in Spanish sausage chorizo.  Here, instead of meat, I am using it to flavor chocolate which imbues this truffle with smokiness that reminds me of spicy sausages and bacon.  I read in a magazine that bacon is the most attractive smell to men far above any floral or citrus fragrance.  That you’re better off attracting men with bacon than dousing yourself with perfume.  I wonder if that partially explains the recent craze towards bacon and chocolate; aphrodisiac with an aphrodisiac.  Well, V-day is coming up! xo
