Latest Food Blogs from Chocolate Reviews
Here in Blighty it?s blisteringly hot. Well for the UK in early June it?s a great deal warmer than it has been at any time in the past twelve months. So no seems to be as good a time as any to try some chilli hot chocolate from the South Devon Chilli Farm. This 250g pack [...]No related posts.
Sometimes when I review I’ll have two or three pieces and want more. I’ll have to step back for a while and let my senses reset before I sit back down so my thoughts and senses are clear enough to do the chocolate justice. The ability to resist temptation and eat fantastic chocolate too quickly [...]You may also like:Menakao Madagascar 72%Amedei 1er Cru 70% Single Origin From MadagascarPatric Chocolate Madagascar 67%
It’s strange. I gave my wife some of this Divine milk chocolate with toffee and sea salt because she’s more in tune with sweet milk chocolate than I am. Her initial reaction was that “there’s too much salt in it”. This was followed with “can I have some more?” In a few short minutes the [...]No related posts.
When asked to choose some chocolate to review my wife instantly suggested this one. Now I’m not sure if that’s because I am an old fossil given that I’m seven years older than her, or because she just because she likes their milk chocolate – I suspect it?s a bit of both. Commercialised and easily-accessible [...]You may also like:Tiddly Chocolate Reindeers From Hotel ChocolatHotel Chocolat Eton Mess Giant SlabChocolate...
There’s no point beating about the bush, I just love Pralus. Of course there are plenty of other names which offer such clean, creamy, rich flavours, but there are few that I can old anywhere near the heady heights as Friis Holm and Marou. Perhaps you idolise other chocolate makers, I can think of any bean to bar [...]You may also like:Pralus Indonesie 75% Cocoa Single Origin Dark Chocolate BarPralus Caracas 75%Pralus Fortissima 80%
Far to the east of the Peruvian capital of Lima lies the town of Pichanki and the CEPROAP (Central de Productores Agroecológicos Pichanaki) Co-operative which I believe is the source of the cocoa used in this very smooth and elegant 100% chocolate from Hotel Chocolat. This move of the iconic British chocolate company into the fringes [...]No related posts.
Although Fiona Sciolti and I have been friends on Facebook for a while, it wasn’t until a recent summery Sunday at Tatton Park for a Foodies Festival that we actually met for the first time. One of her first words to me then are still my favourite: “here’s some chocolate for you”. Of course I [...]You may also like:50 Bars To Be WonBespoke Luxury Chocolate Bars Coming To The UK?Madre Chocolate Bars
La Maison du Chocolat are chocolatiers that I have a sense of guilt about. When I first started reviewing chocolate a few years ago I caught up in the swell created by their funkier alternatives. The Banksies of the chocolate world pushed from the underground closer to the mainstream and naively this seemed more exciting.

Normally when I review Paul’s wonderful selections it’d be after they’d turn up on my doormat with the purpose of a review. These, however, were purchased by myself because I’ve been working so darn hard lately. The only problem is that I’m just too keen to try them that I can’t wait the half hour [...]You may also like:Baruzzo Spring Chocolate CollectionPaul A Young 4 Piece Selection BoxPaul A Young Selection...
To me chocolate with a story tastes better than chocolate made with the sole purpose of making people in rich companies more money. Forever Cacao, a new and very small stone ground chocolate maker from the similarly small village of Guilsfield, Powys, Wales who have sourced what they and their cacao suppliers state is Criollo grown around the villages of Tinkareni and [...]No related posts.
