I’m a lover of chocolates from London – just as much as I dislike stereotypes and lazy thinking. The conventional wisdom is that that the best bon bons are found in London or Paris, perhaps even New York or Tokyo. It’s all about perception and what ‘floats your boat’. It seems that many hold the […]You may also like:Swiss Champagne Truffles From Bon Bons of LeedsToot Sweets Chocolate Selection Box
The thought of eating chocolate made with some alcoholic flower beverage is significantly more appealing than the alternative - even though the packaging is somewhat more understated than Zotter’s usual fair, I just had to give it a whirl. Perhaps it was actually the thought that 12% of this chocolate is actually booze is what tipped the […]You may also like:Amedei Toscano Black 63%Zotter Cheese Walnut and GrapesZotter Mitzi Blue...
In my old age I’m so hard to impress. Halloween never really did it for me. Until today. I walked into my son’s nursery and there was a table with carved out pumpkins sat there proud. Children had worked with their parents to create something together. At that moment I got it. My son is […]You may also like:Hotel Chocolat Halloween Bites H-Box SelectionTiddly Chocolate Reindeers From Hotel ChocolatHotel Chocolat Love Sleekster
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%...
