Rococo is off Round the World again with their Summer Flavours

Enjoy the sensory journey!

IMG-20160616-WA0002The 2016 Summer Collection from Rococo Chocolates carry you off to exciting places; you can almost feel the sun and smell the fruit in these delicious ganaches. The inspiration for these flavours reflects all four continents exploring and incorporating local delicacies of the season.

Lychee & Thai Lime (Thailand, Asia)

This is an unusual combination of Thai lime zest and Madagascan dark ganache, with fruity lychee undertones.

Piña Colada (Australia, Australasia)

Coconuts and pineapples both fruit during the summer months, so Rococo whipped them up into a refreshing Piña Colada jelly with coconut cubes.

Huckleberry Pie (Montana, North America)

Ripe blueberries make delicious pies.  Here’s the Rococo version – fruity blueberry jelly and ganache, topped with a sable disc.

Honey & Sea Salt Caramel (Wales, Europe)

Pembrokshire’s summer bees collect nectar from wild blackberries and coastal gorse.  This luscious caramel balances Coedcanlas honey and Halen Mon sea salt in a milk chocolate dome. This chocolate won a Gold Medal at the recent Academy of Chocolate awards…

Summer Collection 2016 020

The ganaches are available loose in all Rococo shops now, £135/kg.  Boxes of 4 choc (£6.95) and 12 choc (£17.50) will be available in store and online from 1st July.

Ice & Slice by Shot, in Fulham London are making the ices exclusively for Rococo using Rococo’s award winning organic chocolates. Chantal Coady OBE, founder and creative director of Rococo chocolates said about this cooperation. “ It’s so exciting to have found the perfect ice cream partner in Ice & Slice as for a while now we have been dreaming of making our own artisan ice creams based on the Rococo flavours. They are all excellent but my favourites are the pistachio, the crystallised ginger and the Basil & Persian lime. The dairy free chocolate sorbet is sumptuous: so creamy it is hard to believe there is no cream in it!

Notes to Editors on Rococo Chocolate

Rococo Chocolates is the foremost London luxury artisan chocolatier and organic cocoa farmer on the Caribbean island of Grenada. Founded in 1983 by Chantal Coady – Britain’s top chocolate authority and trail blazer of the new “British School of Chocolate” bringing quirky design, craftsmanship, engaged ethics, provenance, pleasure and a certain wit. Rococo is still a 100% family owned business.

Chantal was awarded the OBE for her services to Chocolate in 2014 – the first time such an award had been given for chocolate.

Notes to Editors on Ice and Slice

Ice & Slice is a new project by the talented team behind Shot Espresso, the café and aperitif bar near Fulham Broadway. ​Their gelato is made daily combining premium ingredients like Yeo Valley organic milk and double cream, Sicilian pistachios roasted to order, and whole fruit.

Ice & Slice’s quest for the perfect chocolate on which to base their dark chocolate gelato led them to Rococo. What began as wholesale supply became a full blown love affair when the Rococo team tasted the first batch!

The next step was getting Rococo’s head chocolatier together with the Ice & Slice gelatiers and letting the magic happen. The result was gelato flavours to faithfully evoke the taste of Rococo’s unique, award winning chocolates.
