NUTS! NUTS! GLORIOUS NUTS!… AND SALT

I am all about flavour and as far as I am concerned the best, natural ingredients make the best flavours. So having scoured the equatorial regions of the globe for the finest cacaos, I am very picky about what other ingredients I put with them. They have to be 100% natural and they have to […]

THE MATCHA JOURNEY
FROM UJI TO UFFCULME

COLOMBIA
VENEZUELAN BEAN TRIP DEC. 2017

I use the top c. 3% of the world’s cocoa beans, grown on individual farms, so like fine wines they all have beautiful, complex and unique flavours. These single estate beans don’t just show up at the factory, someone has to go and find them! The first two weeks of December have been a whistle […]
