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 the @cultwine.co.nz
pop-up at @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 Rosé. I’ve never had mulled rosé before but it was really tasty, and perfect with this fruity and tannic Belize dark chocolate.
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.
Send it in style this Christmas.
