The only other time I’ve come across Sri Lankan cocoa is the popular Bonnat Ceylan (which we are currently out of stock of) and this is a nation that has had such a tumultuous past, not least with the British Colonial occupation but also the Civil War that I remember so much hearing about as […]No related posts.
The Papua New Guinea 70% from the Icelandic bean to bar chocolate maker was fantastic, so with gleeful joy I bounded into this Madagascar 66%. The problem with this origin is that its getting a bit like Ecuador – lovely chocolate but I’m seeing it more and more frequently, I do look an awful lot […]No related posts.
The area around Lake Maracaibo in Venezuela produces some utterly fantastic chocolate, most notably using Porcelana cocoa from the southern reaches. Towards the north, and close to the Colombian border we believe the cocoa used to make this chocolate comes from. The issue is that Guasare is not only a strain of cacao, but also […]No related posts.
The South Devon Chilli Farm hold a place very dear in my heart. My second culinary passion are chilies. Seemingly I’ll eat about three a week. I’d put them in sandwiches, pasta and have them ground with salt to spice up many other meals.

So much so that at a child I’d instruct my […]You may also like:Hotel Chocolat Dark Chocolate Canapés with Cocoa NibsHotel Chocolat Old FossilHotel Chocolat...
Chocolate doesn’t have to be single origin to float my boat. Chocolate which pushes any of my numerous buttons can come in many different guises. Today the dapper Johnathon Tailyour who represents Favarger dropped by these three new bars: a Cassis, a Honey and almond and an Apricot – which I’ve already unwrapped and devoured […]You may also like:Sciolti Botanical Chocolate Bars
A couple of years ago I tried to buy some chocolate from Caribeans but they seemed to get lost in the post. But now having found the Chocolate Craft website in Costa Rica which offers chocolate from a variety of local growers and makers I thought I’d give them another go – along with some […]No related posts.
I’m so lastminute.chocolate. I’ve not got anything for my wife for Valentines. The thought did cross my mind, however, when I saw that this chocolate heart full of hot chocolate has the initial ‘L’ on it. Obviously that is a gesture designed by the guys at Sir Hans Sloane to indicate that these hearts can […]No related posts.
We all remember our first kiss. When we reminisce we seem to do so with rose-tinted glasses. When I first started reviewing chocolate all those years ago Booja Booja truffles were one of the first non-mass-market chocolates I ever blogged about. I absolutely adored them.
