The Chocolate Brunch Blend and Its Ingredients
What Does the Chocolate Brunch Blend by Terre Exotique Contain?
For this blend, we have focused on what we do best: sourcing. It contains organic oat flakes, pure cocoa nibs, Mortarelle hazelnuts from Italy, crunchy pecans and almonds, and finally, 52% dark chocolate chips made in France by Valrhona. Carefully selected, all these ingredients are perfect for creating unexpected recipes for brunch.
Organic Oat Flakes – What Are They?
Organic oat flakes come from Avena sativa oats, a plant primarily grown for its seeds. These flakes are derived from cleaned and steam-cooked oat grains, which are then flattened to form the flakes we know. Rich in fiber, protein, and nutrients, organic oat flakes are a healthy and natural option for a balanced breakfast. They are produced without the use of pesticides or chemical fertilizers, making them environmentally friendly and free of chemical residues.
Cocoa nibs are small particles from the cacao bean Theobroma cacao. These fragments, also known as "nibs," are pieces of roasted and shelled cacao beans. Rich in chocolate flavors, cocoa nibs are highly valued in culinary and pastry applications.
Mortarelle Hazelnuts from Italy
Mortarelle hazelnuts of the Italian variety are delicious nuts specific to Italy. They come from the Corylus avellana shrub, typical of the Mediterranean region. Mortarelle hazelnuts are appreciated for their rich flavor and crunchy texture. Cultivated in Italy, they are perfect for various culinary preparations, from pastries to healthy snacks. Their superior quality and Italian origin make them a preferred choice for hazelnut enthusiasts.

Valrhona's superior quality chocolate is recognized worldwide, and these chips are no exception. Their intense flavor and melting texture make them ideal for pastries, cookies, or even simply enjoyed as they are.
The History of Brunch
Brunch, a delightful fusion of breakfast and lunch, has a fascinating history. Its origins date back to the 19th century in Great Britain when British aristocrats began adopting the habit of having a more substantial meal than their usual Sunday breakfast. This tradition was popularized by English novelist Jane Austen in her literary works. Over the years, brunch crossed the Atlantic to become a major trend in the United States in the early 20th century. Luxury hotels in New York began serving sumptuous brunches, attracting an affluent clientele. In the 1960s, brunch became a symbol of hippie culture and gained popularity as a friendly and casual meal. Brunch buffets and specialized restaurants emerged, offering a wide variety of dishes, from eggs Benedict to pancakes, along with morning cocktails like the mimosa. Today, brunch has become a global phenomenon with unique cultural variations in each region. It has become more than just a meal; it's a social moment where friends and family come together to enjoy delicious cuisine, chat, and relax over the weekend. Brunch has become a pillar of contemporary gastronomy, integrating a variety of dishes and cultures to satisfy all tastes.
