".......I love making Lavender and Sea Salt White Chocolate Ganache especially when you get the perfect balance of lavender to sea salt as you get the lavender then the wishy washiness of the sea around you mouth"
You can see as each chocolate is made/invented the sense of taste, scent & touch all come into play.
These experiences make my work so magical and excites me to develop new chocolates, and to return to old favourites
As was the case today, making the exclusive Captains Club Chocolate box . When I was asked to develop the hotel's chocolates I wanted to create a chocolate that encapsulated the essence of the Captains Club. Its proximity to the river, with the salty sea spray blowing in the wind and then the scent of the lavender growing in the riverside garden. The chocolates are now firmly part of the hotel. Guests may have a surprise box of chocolates in their room for a special occasion . To learn more about the hotel pop over to Captains Club in Christchurch, if you book a room you may be lucky and get the chocolates too!
