National Chocolate Week is upon us again and we’re so happy to have a full week dedicated to the celebration of chocolate!

During one of our tastings this week we were asked what it’s all about – why chocolate week?

For us its always been about celebrating chocolate in its beautiful wondrous form and the way it is so very versatile… as an ingredient and as a delicious food all on its own.

We love playing with chocolate in our chocolate room and delight in coming up with new ways of using this amazing food  – Chocolate and goats cheese pizza, chocolate hummus, chocolate tapenade, roast chicken and chocolate, chocolate mole and of course traditional chocolate bars, chocolate truffles and pralines.

We hope you will enjoy chocolate week and try out something new with chocolate this week. Recipe for our chocolate and goats cheese pizza:

Ingredients:

Sour dough pizza base

Mozzarella

Tomato puree

Goats cheese

Dark intense chocolate (the stronger the better)

Any other toppings you fancy

Method:

Spread tomato puree on the base

Spread grated mozzarella on top

Top with chunks of dark chocolate and slices of goats cheese

Bake in a preheated oven at 200 deg C for 10 minutes

Bon Appetit!

The title of the campaign was inspired by a quote from an independent gallery owner after the closure of their gallery. “If everyone who’d complimented our […]
