ROCOCO CHOCOLATES ARTISAN BAR COLLECTION

Rococo Artisan Bar Styling smlFrom opening London’s first real chocolate shop on the Kings Road almost 35 years ago to being awarded the first OBE for Services to Chocolate, Chantal Coady and Rococo are always striving for perfection in both taste and presentation.  Their Artisan Bars, some of the most popular products in their large range, have been given a makeover to make them look and taste even more scrumptious.

With this relaunch Rococo are using more beans from their Grenadian cocoa farm in their house blend, which also contains beans from Tanzania, Dominican Republic and Peru. This has created a smooth and toasty chocolate with fruity notes. The milk chocolate bars now contain almost 10% more cocoa for a richer 40% blend.

This award-winning range of Artisan Bars celebrates Rococo’s history. From classic flavours to exotic influences, each bar in this iconic collection is a reflection of Chantal’s diverse experiences and adventures in far flung locations. Rococo hopes you will enjoy their chocolates as much as Chantal has enjoyed their creation and design.

We asked Chantal which flavours were her favourite for this season: This is what she said: “For the summer it has to be Milk Sea Salt first, as that was inspired walking along a beach in Cornwall back in 1999, followed by the White Cardamom which is so exotic, zingy and not overly sweet as white chocolate can be.”

On the inside of the packaging you will find the Rococo story and lots of useful information on the bars and the farm in Grenada.

LET THERE BE LIGHT

_R5A5292With autumn round the corner, it is the time of year when we will start to think about lighting up our living spaces. Broste Copenhagen believes that good lighting is indispensable.

The right lighting brings a homely feeling and atmosphere into the room. When choosing a lamp it is important to think about a lights character and design, its materials and its placement and the ambience you wish to create.

In the AW collection from Broste Copenhagen they have included a great number of different lights to fit most if not all interiors. Prices vary with designs:  for example the concrete socket retails at £30 and a brass pendant £124.00.
