Celebrate National Chocolate Week & Win a Tasting Session for 2 at Rococo


This week is National Chocolate week, and I can’t think of a better time of year to indulge in chocolate. I read an article recently saying researchers had found eating dark chocolate lowers blood pressure and that chocolate contains serotonin, which cheers you up! There are just so many chocolates to chose from .. not all of them are delicious  not all of them are responsibly buying their cocoa beans or support the communities where the beans are grown. 

One of the best ways of trying new chocolates and buying ethically is to go to a specialist chocolate boutique such as Rococo's in London and this week they have a series of events such as the Blindfolded Chocolate Tasting on the 14th of October  and a whole week of chocolate tasting in celebration!
Laurent Couchaux  Rococo's head Chocolatier won Chocolatier of the year this year .. so these chocolates are utterly divine.   Listen to my interview with him below to get an idea of just how heavenly  the flavours are!
Laurent Couchaux – Principle Chocolatier at Rococo Chocolates, Chocolatier of the Year (mp3)

So I am delighted to be able to offer a Customised Celebration Chocolate Tasting Session
Length: 1 hour for 2 people; maximum at the Motcomb Street Shop: Cost normally £75 per head. 
This tasting session, led by an experienced team member, will take you through a fabulous chocolate experience. You will taste different chocolate bars and mouthwatering handmade truffles whilst listening to the history of cocoa.  At the end of the tasting you will also receive a goody bag and a signed copy of Chocolate: The Food of the Gods
 by Chantal Coady.

  1. I'd like to take my best friend, who is a chocoholic with high expectations and a current Biochemistry PhD student. She and I have made truffles and cakes together and she recently sent me macaron mix in the post so that I could make my own macarons at home - now that's dedication for you!

If you are reading my blog I must warn you that I am not impartial. I want to influence you. I want to make you stop for just a moment and consider the effect of a lifetime of seemingly insignificant decisions and how making small delicious choices can change the world.

I believe that we can change the world one bite at a time.

It's a delicious revolution.
