This tasty hors d’oeuvre was created by Randy Lewis, chef at the Tavern at Lark Creek in Northern California. The flavors of the chorizo and chocolate are a surprisingly winning combination.


For the ganache:
  1. 1In a small saucepan bring cream, milk, and salt to a boil. Place remaining ingredients in a stainless steel bowl. Pour cream mixture over chocolate and let stand without stirring for 1 minute, then whisk just until combined. Refrigerate, stirring occasionally, until spreadable, about 1 to 2 hours.

To serve:

  1. 1Heat the oven to 250°F. Cut a sweet baguette into thin slices and place on a baking sheet. Bake for 15 to 20 minutes or until golden brown. Remove from the oven and let cool.
  2. 2Spread the chocolate on the crostini and top with sliced chorizo.
