Have you ever thought of eating a horse-shoe? Or a spanner?
So it looks great, but does it taste good?
You’d be forgiven for wondering if the Amazing Chocolate workshop's chocolate tastes nice. It looks weird, like tools and things. And you may never have thought of eating a horseshoe before. Could it be made of rubbish chocolate like that cheap, grainy ‘advent calendar’ stuff?
The short answer is they only use fine-grade, Venezuelan chocolate. But we know you’ll be wanting a little more detail, so...
Quality and Ingredients:
Using truly top-notch ingredients, the Amazing Chocolate Workshop creates visually fantastic creations with the following;
The famous trinitario cocoa bean:
This is what really sets the Amazing Chocolate workshop apart. We use a rather special cocoa bean called the ‘Trinitario’, from Venezuela; an extremely sought after variety used in less than 10% of worldwide chocolate production due to the expertise needed to grow them. They are world-renowned for their fine flavour and only used by premium producers.
Fine-grade ingredients & fine flavour
Their cocoa beans are carefully sourced and chosen for their luxurious, indulgent flavour, making our chocolate pieces truly special both to look at and to taste. Their plain chocolate is naturally velvety, smooth and creamy and contains less sugar than a lot of every day chocolate you might find in the supermarket.
High cocoa content, no compromise.
They put 64% cocoa in our creamy plain chocolate, giving it the perfect balance of sweetness and rich indulgence; it’s mellow and moreish without any lingering bitterness. Their milk chocolate contains a high 37% cocoa and our white contains a minimum of 30% cocoa. The result is all in the flavour, fine chocolate that’s sweet without being sickly.
How do they do it?
There’s no whizzy machinery involved in the process, in fact the majority of our craft involves traditional chocolate-making methods. Every item is individually hand-made, starting with those rather special cocoa beans.
We think our chocolate’s a little bit magical, and any magician worth their salt never reveals the secrets behind their tricks… sorry guys.
Whether it’s rusty old tools or nice shiny keys, the final finish really helps to give the chocolate its eye-catching appearance, which is why every individual piece is finished by hand. Painstaking, yes, but we think it’s worth it.
The Amazing Chocolate workshop will be in our centre on Level 2 opposite Oroton from the 12th November until the 28th December.
