Time for day two of our pop-up with @cultwine.co.nz and @caveducochon at @tearowine ! Come try some craft chocolate, natural wine and champagne! We'll be here at 8 Ebor Street until 4pm. ✌
This year we're recommending that you get your Christmas orders in by the 17th of December. The couriers always get overwhelmed at Christmas so don't leave it until the last minute!
WELLINGTON! Exciting news! We're going to be appearing at theΒ @cultwine.co.nz pop-up atΒ @tearowine tomorrow (11 til 6) and Saturday (10 til 4)! Head on down to 8 Ebor Street and grab yourself some delicious craft chocolate and some incredible wine! Perfect for last minute Christmas shopping!
For this month’s pairing suggestion, I recommend trying the @miann_chocolatefactory Maya Mountain 70% with a glass of mulled wine. I tasted it with @thechangernz - a mulled wine syrup made in Queenstown that’s designed to mix with RosΓ©. I’ve never had mulled rosΓ© before but it was really tasty, and perfect with this fruity and tannic Belize dark chocolate.
What an absolute honour to have an article of mine published in the latest issue of @stonesoupsyndicate magazine! πŸ“–πŸ« This article is all about the craft chocolate movement, cocoa trade and the relationship between quality and ethics in chocolate. Be sure to have a read if you're keen - you'll find Stone Soup in a variety of shops, cafes and venues around NZ. I'll also be sending out a copy to all of our subscribers in January. πŸ‘Œ . . . . . . . . . #stonesoup #Auckland #Wellington #newzealand #beantobar #craftchocolate #finechocolate #nzfood #nzfoodie #foodie #foodwriter #foodwriting #chocolate #nzchocolate #cacao #ethical #ethics #sustainability #sustainable #diversity #delicious #nzwriters #chocolatelovers #chocolategeek

Recently I’ve been thinking a lot about pure expression. My favourite food tends to be simple, with an emphasis on amazing raw ingredients that are brought to their full potential. Likewise, the best artists, musicians and writers tend to be the ones who learn to express themselves purely; to channel their own existence. And in my experience, the loveliest people tend to be completely comfortable in their own skin. To achieve this natural state of being or expression, we need to go through a process on unlearning; of forgetting internal and external pressures, of shedding all unnecessary attributes. And that’s what’s happening in the world of craft chocolate right now. Chocolate is going through a period of unlearning - forgetting the unnecessary additives, the corruption of the process and the smoke and mirrors of the industry. The result is something that reaches new depths of deliciousness, and a pure expression of naturally beautiful cacao. This chocolate really knows itself.
Have you tried the @pumpstreetchocolate Brown Bread White Chocolate yet? What a beauty!
Send it in style this Christmas.

The exceptional new @foundrychocolate Vanuatu 70% bar is now available from our online store. This is a rich and decadent dark chocolate with notes of toffee, caramel and mocha. Yum! 🍫 I'm very excited to see another world-class chocolate bar being made with Pacific Islands beans. The level of quality that we're starting to see in cacao from Vanuatu, the Solomon Islands, Papua New Guinea and Fiji is really going to new heights. The future is bright for Pacific craft chocolate! 🌏🌱 . . . . . . . . #beantobar #craftchocolate #finechocolate #artisanchocolate #artisan #cacao #darkchocolate #Pacific #pacificislands #Vanuatu #newzealand #nzchocolate #ethical #delicious #singleorigin #chocolatelovers #chocolatemaking #chocolate #gifts #giftideas #sustainability #sustainable #cocoa #Twitter
