To coincide with the release of Disney’s adaptation of Roald Dahl’s ‘The BFG’ directed by Steven Spielberg, the talented chocolatiers at Rococo Chocolates have been hard a work creating a very special bar inspired by this story.
This mouth-watering 30% cocoa white chocolate bar is based on the BFG’s favourite whizzpopping beverage, Frobscottle, and his most loathsome snack of Snozzcumbers, playing with the fresh summer flavours of mint, cucumber, strawberry and raspberry. The creamy white chocolate is a two-tone pink and green cocktail of fruity flavours.
The good news is that there are more to come. Many of Roald Dahl’s stories had a formative influence on Chantal Coady OBE, owner and creative director of Rococo Chocolates, and her life in chocolate. To celebrate Roald Dahl 100, Roald Dahl’s centenary year, Rococo Chocolates have created a range of chocolate bars based on six other books too. Each one is inspired by the genius of Roald Dahl, the world’s No. 1 storyteller, and will be available in Rococo shops soon. Watch this space!!
Rococo Chocolates have teamed up with the Volcano Coffee Works (recently features on BBC2’s ‘Sweets Made Simple’) to bring gourmet coffee to the Motcomb Street Café to match their award-winning chocolates.
The Rococo kitchens and Volcano Coffee Works’ speciality coffee roastery are neighbours in South London. There, the beans are roasted in small batches by expert roasters on lovingly restored and customised vintage coffee roasters.
Richard Larkin, Managing Director of Rococo Chocolates said, “It’s exciting to set up such a rewarding collaboration. We both have an uncompromising attitude to quality and our own brand ethics of Pleasure and Provenance. I can say with confidence that our Rococo café now serves the best mocha in London.”
Enjoy a Rococo Volcano Mocha at Motcomb St alongside freshly made ganaches by Rococo’s award-winning chocolatiers or delicious cakes handmade on the premises. You can also find their award-winning hot chocolate that can be flavoured with sea salt, chilli, cardamom or mint served with Rococo artisan marshmallows – the perfect autumnal treat.
Make the most of the last days of summer by enjoying your chocolate and coffee in the secret MaRococo garden hidden behind Rococo Motcomb Street.
