London Chocolate Trip

A day out in London ! Hurrah ! Under the pretence of research (really it was a research, but still a lots of fun !) I headed off to London to visit Speciality and Fine Food Fair at Olympia. This was a trade show only, so I had my ticket in advance and also had the chance to plan which stall to visit. (Precise military operation, you see...)

There was so much to see and I can't remember, whether I ever enjoyed 'work fair' that much before. I tasted some lovely single origin chocolates (Java is currently my favourite) and some completely new ones - caramelised white chocolate. The time went so quickly, filled with discussions about holding tanks, tempering machines and the best natural oils to use in ganache. I went home very happy, day dreaming about the next flavour I'm going to try in my chocolate truffles.



My current chocolate collection, full of summery light flavours like Ginger & Lime or Elderflower Glory is on my own website: www.cocoaandheart.co.uk and soon to be available on one of the large handmade websites (more on that later...)
