Cooking chocolate to inspire, handmade dark chocolate slab to taste, Argentinian red wine to enjoy - a classic and simple gift.
Jed Wines: 2013 Jed Malbec: Uco Valley, Mendoza, Argentina.
Each year Jed's three Australian winemakers travel to the Uco Valley in Mendoza, Argentina, situated in the foothills of the Andes at 1200 metres above sea level to produce wines that express the unique characters of this acclaimed region. Mendoza is famous for producing the world's finest Malbec and the Jed team have harnessed this tradition to create this medium bodied wine with bright cherry and blueberry flavours combined with well integrated oak. An enjoyable wine that prospers from the global collaboration between Australia and Argentina.
Lindsay & Edmunds: Dark Honey-Almond Praline Slab: Fairbairn, Australia.
Created by former chef Peter Edmunds, this slab of dark chocolate is handmade praline using organic bush honey, organic roast almonds and organic sugar. The praline is hand pounded in a mortar then folded through the chocolate to create a crunchy chewy chocolate that is just lovely. The chocolate is Belgian and is single origin, certified organic, Fair-trade, gluten free and dairy free. This particular slab won the silver medal at the 2011 Royal Easter Show.
Willie's Cacao: Venezuelan Black 100% Carenero Cacao: Uffculme, United Kingdom.
'Flavour is King' is the call of the chocolatier Willie Harcourt-Cooze and that is certainly true of this intense 100% pure cacao bar, one of the first three he created. The beans are sourced from Barlovento which means 'windward' and refers to a coastal stretch of Venezuela where the humid winds blow continuously onto the land. The beans are turned into cacao in Willie's chocolate factory in Uffculme, Devon UK. This bar has flavour notes of nuts and spice with a full bodied and strong chocolaty taste. Fantastic in the kitchen, grate into gravies and casseroles to add depth and flavour, or use to make rich truffles. Yum.
