Chocolate week celebrations
To celebrate Chocolate Week (12-18 October) farmer owned chocolate company Divine Chocolate is giving four classic dessert recipes a glamorous makeover.
Partnering up with four celebrity chefs, the collection of recipes includes sachertorte, black forest pudding, chocolate mousse and a classic chocolate roulade.
Patron of the fairtrade founder and founder of the UK’s first healthy fast food restaurant Leon, Allegra McEvedy’s 70s chocolate roulade has a soft flourless sponge and is wrapped around a delicious brandy cream filling.
Tony Rodd, a finalist in this year’s Masterchef is revamping the classic black forest gateau to include a chocolate cup filled with layers of chocolate sponge, cherry mousse and compote served with chocolate soil and a sweet and sharp cherry sorbet.
Chef, author and Divine Chocolate fan Sam Stern is glamming up his chocolate mousse with a twist of orange and a sprinkle of sea salt.
Queen of chocolate and divine cookbook author Lina Collister is sharing her recipe for sachertorte, the classic Viennese cake created in the 1880s. This dense chocolate sponge is topped with a layer of apricot jam, then covered in a shiny and rich dark chocolate icing.
Supporting chocolate week for 12 years, Divine plans to host a number of chocolate experiences and events, in shops, tearooms, restaurants and hotels across the country as well as exhibiting at this years Chocolate Show in London.
