Gems from the Kitchen

Cocoa Nib Praline

Once fermented, roasted and crushed, cocoa bean kernels are known as “nibs”.  Part way to becoming chocolate, cocoa nibs can be used as an ingredient just as they are, bringing a crunch of intense flavour. In the Cocoa Nib Praline Iain uses a base layer of marzipan incorporating cocoa nibs under gianduja, topped with dark chocolate, feathered with a milk chocolate pattern.


 Healthy Choices

pic25Relaxation is a vital part of a healthy lifestyle but busy people can find it very difficult to slow down. Try using chocolate as a focus for mindfulness.  There’s no better choice than the World’s best dark truffle to  hone one’s ability to appreciate the here and now.
