Dear SOS: Recchiuti Confections has a store in the Ferry Building in San Francisco, where I had the most incredible dark chocolate brownie I have ever tasted. I was hoping that you might be able to get the recipe.
Dear Louis: When we saw your request for a brownie recipe from Recchiuti, we were anxious to procure it and try it out. Everyone loves brownies, after all, whether secretly or publicly, and knowing that Recchiuti is an amazing chocolatier, we thought they just might hold the secret to brownie nirvana.
They do. Owner Jacky Recchiuti uses premium unsweetened high-cacao “couverture” chocolate such as 100% cacao Valrhona Etienne Guittard Artisan line, or 99% cacao Scharffen Berger; before baking she stirs in top-quality semisweet chocolate chunks such as Scharffen Berger 62%.
