Latest Food Blogs from Chocolate Reviews
From the very popular selection of chocolate gifts sent over just before Easter this year that were not only well received here, but also by my extended family, to Cally’s Autumn collection which features eight bon bons of four different varieties: Bonfire Toffee Truffle, Rhubarb & Custard, Berry Crumble Truffle and the Toffee Apple. I’ve been craving rhubarb crumble […]You may also like:Chocally Chocolate...
If there was an example of what you can do with the much maligned Amelonado cocoa (and varieties thereof) this is it. I was planning a post about who it?s just down right stupid to write-off 80% of the cocoa produced. The inaccurate conventional wisdom goes that if it?s not Criollo or even Trinitario then […]You may also like:Friis Holm Chuno 70%
Maps amaze me as much as chocolate. Whenever I find out where cocoa is grown I instantly load it up in Google maps and look at the geography, the terrain and how it sits amongst neighbouring conurbations. As the map of Tan Phu Dong, where the cocoa used in this new chocolate bar by Marou originates, […]No related posts.
The guys at Daintree Estates sent over some extra chocolate from their new ranges with a recent order and as always, the unusual origins in the box jumped out and demanded to be reviewed. Having reviewed and enjoyed cocoa from the Pacific, specifically Vanuatu, I opened up this Solomon Islands packet of chocolate with great […]You may also like:Daintree Estates Dark Chocolate
Some times chocolate is far too addictive for your own good. Often I find the most addictive chocolate either is born out of abstaining from the good stuff for far too long or just because it hits all the right notes. Big business spends billions finding the balance of salt, sugar and fats in their […]You may also like:Dick Taylor 72% Madagascar Dark ChocolateFruition Dark Milk Chocolate with Fleur de Sel
Here we have Scotland’s entry into the ever-growing fraternity of British chocolate makers. For the past three or four years I have thought that American chocolate makers had this country licked when it came to awesome bean-to-bar chocolate. But now, I feel a good number of very talented people this side of the pond are […]No related posts.
Dolceria Bonajuto creates chocolate the way they want to. Their corner of Modica seems as far away from focus-groups, bar charts and marketing strategy meetings as you could ever wish for – and even further from the designed by committee and manufactured machine ‘chocolate’ you’ll find in any corner shop or petrol station. The formulas […]You may also like:Dolceria Bonajuto 70% Dark ChocolateDolceria Bonajuto 65%...
The Patanemo area of Venezuela is responsible for some wonderful cocoas. But with the likes of established chocolate makers such as Dandelion and Mast Brothers doing great things with them and other interesting companies such as Hummingbird using the Tisano-sourced Trinitario cocoa, what can a relative new-comer to the chocolate making fraternity achieve the beans […]You may also like:Dandelion Patanemo 70%Quality Street My Purple Bar
Over the past half-decade or so this site has steadfastly stuck to the rule that everything reviewed must contain chocolate. That’s included chocolate beer, cheese and all sorts of other oddities, but never anything made from Theobroma Grandiflorum. As the Latin name suggests, it?s actually a genetic relative of Theobroma Cacao which all true chocolate […]You may also like:Limited Edition: Oriente Cuba Terruño de BaracoaSunshine and...
In a post recently I commented on the difference between a chocolate maker and a chocolatier. Some took the post the wrong way. Some thought I devalued the role of a chocolatier purely because they don’t turn beans into chocolate. But that is to misunderstand the point completely. My point may have been better framed as “you […]You may also like:CHOC Chick Raw Chocolate Making Starter Kit
