ROCOCO’S CHOCOLATE CAVIAR

Caviar and fine dark chocolate have long been associated with the Champagne Lifestyle.

Now Rococo has taken English caviar infused Cornish sea salt from the Exmore Caviar Company, and transformed the grains into subtly salted dark chocolate pearls*.

The result is an incredible umami experience, and it is a unique gift for the connoisseur, dinner party host or could be used to bring a unique chef-y twist to any dish, sweet or savoury.

Exclusive to Rococo, this caviar comes in a beautiful tin designed by Chantal Coady OBE, founder, owner and creative director of Rococo Chocolates.

Chantal said, “I am really excited about our latest innovation. It has been great fun working with the Exmoor Caviar Company who produce the very first truly British caviar, from sturgeons raised on Exmoor.”

*Fine single origin 75% Tanzanian chocolate.

The tin contains 45g & retails at £20.00

Launching at the Paris Salon du Chocolat,

October 27th – November 1st.

Best of British: A Staycation for Rococo flavours in 2017

 

Having jetted around the world exploring exotic flavours last year, and with all the World Events, Rococo Chocolates has decided to celebrate what is close to home and is staying in the UK for 2017 and finding exciting local specialities, distinct flavours and seasonal ingredients – all the goodness the regions have to offer.  The Spring Collection takes us to the North and Wales. The beauty of Wales brings gifts from nature with Pembrokeshire Sea Salt and a delicate Rosewater: the only one from welsh-grown roses. For the North, Karen Waller, head chocolatier and her team worked their magic on local classics, with Liquorice, Rhubarb, and a Bakewell Pudding. The selection is both beautiful and delicious.

 

Sea Salted Caramel

A dark, smoky caramel, with Halen Môn oak-smoked sea salt, decorated with spirulina to look like the crashing waves of the Welsh coast.

 

 

Rose of the Valleys

A traditional, soft fondant, flavoured with a hint of delicate ‘Petals of the Valley’ Rosa Damascena rosewater, distilled in copper stills in the Monmouthshire valleys.

 

Rhubarb & Liquorice

Paying tribute to Yorkshire, the chocolatiers combined the Liquorice of Pontefract Cake nostalgia with Rhubarb, in homage to the home of the Rhubarb Triangle.

 

 

 

Cherry Bakewell

Dark, Cherry jelly and Amaretto-laced marzipan come together to form a delicious, chocolate version of the Derbyshire classic.”

 

 

The Spring collection is available in Rococo stores and online anyday now, in 12 and 4 choc boxes £17.95 and £6.50 and loose in store too at £14.20 per 100g.

Sack Cloth & Ashes or Chocolate & Charity?

Chocolate has long been top of the list of things to give up for Lent, and now Rococo Chocolates has come up with a revolutionary idea: the Absolution bar. By buying your favourite bar, you are making a donation of £1.00 which goes to the The Lent Appeal 2017 in the Parish of St Paul’s Knightsbridge*. The bar will be given a special Absolution wrapper; the design is a collaboration with Mr Smith’s Letterpress. The inspiration came following a challenge from the Rev Alan Gyle*, to Chantal Coady OBE, founder and owner of Rococo Chocolates, she explained: “As a ‘good’ Convent girl,  I was always encouraged to give up chocolate for Lent which I found a trial. I would have loved the opportunity to pay for my indulgences… now I can make up for lost time!”

ALEXANDER ARMSTRONG (Broadcaster and TV Presenter of BBC1’s Pointless):

“I’ve always struggled to give up chocolate for the season of Lent. Here is a great way of giving in to temptation and doing good at the same time – with Absolution! This partnership between my London church and one of my favourite Chocolate Companies is a great opportunity to support the ALMA Link between the Diocese of London and the Church in Angola and Mozambique.”

THE REVEREND RICHARD COLES (Broadcaster and Vicar)

During my time in the Parish of St Paul’s Knightsbridge it was only prayer and the Rococo Chocolate shop in Motcomb Street that kept me sane! This delicious collaboration between two of Belgravia’s great institutions is a win-win for the holy season of Lent: chocolate for you and the knowledge that you’re supporting an emerging and fruitful partnership between one of the world’s most privileged corners in London’s Belgravia and one of the world’s poorest in Mozambique.

SAHAR HASHEMI OBE (co-founder of Coffee Republic, Skinny Candy, author and speaker)

Our church is always looking for ways to transform life and to make a connection between daily living and the work of the Kingdom of God. Chantal Coady OBE and Fr Alan Gyle have come up with a simple, delicious and clever way of contributing to the Lent Appeal in 2017. And of course if you feel guilty about eating the chocolate yourself during the Lenten season of austerity, you can either keep it for Easter or buy it and give it as a gift – a gift that gives twice!

*The Lent Appeal 2017 in the Parish of St Paul’s Knightsbridge is in support of an emerging link between one of London’s most privileged parishes and one of the world’s poorest – All Saints Namhavila in Mozambique. This new partnership is just the latest expression of a longstanding link between the Diocese of London and the Church in Angola and Mozambique (The ALMA Link).

St Paul’s Knightsbridge: registered charity No. 1134857

Lent starts on Ash Wednesday March 1st 2017

The traditional 40 day fast runs up to midnight on Easter Saturday April 12th.
