Chef Chris Amendola’s commitment to hyperlocal dishes and storytelling led to the creation of the original Foraged.Eatery chocolate bar pack; the bites are made with all the same ingredients, love and uphold all the values, including great taste, local community involvement and empowerment.
Salt Flavor Profile
The unique flavor in this bar was found in a local oyster called Happy Oysters.
Chef Chris Amendola accomplished this hyperlocal creation by working with the farmer of Sapidus Farms, Mike Manyak.
Mike shared water from his farm and Chris experimented until he was able to craft his own salt; this is also the finishing salt
