chocolate soil

Bonjour,

Je suis désemparée. Quelqu'un connaît le chocolat parmi vous?

Un cuisinier prépare du chocolat en deux façons dont:

- A raspberry ganache tempered into a log (Une ganache à la framboise en forme de bûche?)

- A chocolate soil (Mais qu'est-ce? Du chocolat émietté? Une base en chocolat?)

Je ne trouve pas d'occurrences, le personnage parle vite, dans le feu de l'action et je n'ai pas d'images à l'appui.

Merci de me sauver!

    I'm not sure what it's called in French, but you can see some photos of "chocolate soil" here.
    One British recipe refers to it as "Chocolate soil (crumbs)."

    Actually, for recipes involving a garden- or forest-themed dessert, "chocolate soil" is indeed the term used.
    The link I gave above showed images of chocolate soil by itself.
    See here for images of the finished products/desserts.

    Not sure I would follow a recipe which described chocolate soil - never ever heard it used but the link shows some eccentric cooks do use it.
    Bûche is OK in English and French, either a Xmas log or a chocolate log - Bûche de Noel but I would say powdered chocolate (very fine) to sprinkle on top or grated chocolate to give a base or a thick covering; I would not say soil.
