Raspberry and chocolate
The practice of combining fruit and chocolate likely dates back hundreds of years, but pinpointing the exact origins of raspberry and chocolate as a pairing is challenging, as it likely evolved over time in various parts of the world.
The use of fruit in desserts and sweet treats has a long history in culinary traditions around the world.
In Europe, berries have been used in pastries and desserts since at least mediaeval times. Chocolate, on the other hand, was brought to Europe from the Americas in the 16th century. Originally, it was consumed primarily as a beverage, but by the 18th and 19th centuries, people had begun to use chocolate in a variety of sweet dishes.
As for the pairing of raspberry and chocolate, it likely became more popular in the 20th century with the advent of modern confectionery techniques. This was when filled chocolates began to become popular, and chocolatiers started experimenting with a variety of fillings, including fruit creams and jellies. Today, raspberry and chocolate is a beloved combination in many types of desserts, from chocolate bars to cakes to our artisanal filled chocolates.
