For some, folding back the wrapper on a rich piece of decadent chocolate can be a euphoric experience. For sisters Kristen Giorgi and Laura Naples, the artists behind NG Collective Studio, that indulgent chocolate provided them with a creative muse of the most delicious variety. Kristin Hard, master chocolatier and owner of CACAO, invited Giorgi and Naples to join in a unique collaboration, using chocolate as their medium. This eclectic meeting of the minds has produced culinary delicacies such as salame di cioccolato (chocolate salami), chocolate bars with fennel-orange spice and an Italian-inspired truffle collection with flavors such as fig balsamic, campari and espresso, just to name a few. Made with 60 to 70 percent dark chocolate, the full NGC Studio CACAO collection can be found (and tasted) at CACAO Buckhead.
