Recchiuti--The Flavor of Frisco
San Francisco based chocolatier Michael Recchiuti recently tapped Brian Barneclo, a local muralist who has been painting the town for a decade, to expand his artistic vision to chocolate. Barneclo’s chocolate designs are inspired by the historic Mission District--known for it’s ecclesial beginnings, vibrant murals, and Latin flavor. Crafting graphically embellished chocolate where taste is not compromised has proven a difficult task for some, but not for Recchiuti. His incredibly creamy ganache, handmade with 65% dark chocolate is perfectly merged with a subtle cinnamon malt and a bold wild rasberry and is nothing short of rapturous.
