    Brown Butter

    Regular price $42.00

    We've teamed up with Pepe Saya and The Hub General Store to create a dreamy bar of brown butter milk chocolate. This bar features our 55% chocolate with a nice amount of Pepe Saya Brown butter, adding a nutty creaminess to the bar.

    From the harvest and sorting, through roasting and winnowing, to grinding and pouring - every bar of our chocolate takes almost a week to make and it’s all done in our factory in Cremorne. We start with small samples and explore the characteristics of each batch before developing a new variety of chocolate. See how the process unfolds below.

    • Pepe Saya Butter was born to bring quality, artisanal butter back to Australia. In 2010, founder Pierre Issa (Pepe) began his journey by making cultured butter, a traditional European method. What makes Pepe Saya special is their dedication to the process: they use fresh, single-origin cream from pasture-fed cows, which is cultured for a unique, tangy flavour profile.

    • After churning, the butter is hand-kneaded and moulded, ensuring a creamy texture. Pepe Saya is known for its superior taste and quality, elevating the culinary experience and demonstrating that Australian butter can rival the best in the world. We take their butter and transform it into a nutty, deep-flavoured brown butter, which adds a nutty, caramel flavour to the chocolate.

    • Hunted+Gathered have always been driven by a singular mission: to delve into the depths and nuances of the cacao bean, creating chocolate that’s as honest and pure as it is uniquely flavorful. Their dedication to the craft and the small details involved in chocolate making underscores everything we do, enabling us to produce products that we are not just proud of, but that are also emblematic of our core values of simplicity and quality.

    • Our philosophy ensures that every piece of Hunted+Gathered chocolate offers a distinct experience that celebrates the natural taste of the cacao bean. It’s a philosophy that guides Hunted+Gathered in creating chocolate that invites our customers to savour the pure, rich flavours of cacao, with each bar serving as a reminder of the beauty of minimalism.

    Why is Hunted+Gathered different from other chocolate?

    There aren't many people making chocolate from start to finish anymore and this is something we specialise in. From sourcing fine flavoured cacao beans from around the world, to roasting, grinding, and conching in house. Being in control of all processes ensures we can focus on quality and know what has gone into the chocolate and how it has been treated along the way. As we are sourcing such full flavoured and high quality cacao beans, we process them with care and at low temperatures as to not lose the pure characteristics of the beans.

    What is the shelf life?
