A giveaway in collaboration with Willie’s Cacao.
WILLIE HARCOURT-COOZE INVITES EVERYONE TO JOIN HIM IN THE FIRST EVER LIVE TASTING OF SINGLE ESTATE, ARTISAN CHOCOLATES
Discover the taste of real artisan chocolate, and the astonishing differences in flavour between the world’s great single estate cacaos. Join the Facebook online tasting with Willie and Great British Chefs on March 14th, 2018.
Chocolate has become a sugary fatty confection, a million miles away from health-giving cacao, which boasts some 400 different flavours and was worshipped for centuries for the way it makes you feel. It has become Willie Harcourt-Cooze’s mission to open other people’s eyes to real chocolate… to start The Chocolate Revolution!
“Few things give me such pleasure as watching someone gasping with delight as the chocolate melts, and the realisation dawns that all taste comes simply from the cacao…”
Willie has teamed up with Great British Chefs to do an exclusive Facebook Live Chocolate Tasting and he has created a limited edition Single Estate Discovery Collection of 8 bars especially for the event.
During the live tasting (register your interest here!) you could be one of the lucky winners of a free tasting chocolate pack if you comment by telling Willie what flavours you prefer between nutty, fruity and caramel with the #chocolaterevolution in your comment.
The chocolates are also available on williescacao.com at the special price of £8.00 P&P included (instead of £16) with the code TASTE8
Willie’s Cacao Facts of the week:
• Did you know that different varieties of cacaos have different colours and shapes? All the cacaos Willie’s Cacao use are either Trinitario or Criollo, which you can recognise by their more pointed, elongated shape.
• Did you know that the percentage of cocoa solids you see on the back of pack represent the total of cocoa mass, as well as cocoa butter that is contained in the chocolate?
• Did you know that mass-made chocolate only takes a few hours to make, while an average artisan chocolate takes a few days?
• All Willie’s Cacao chocolate is perfectly suited for vegetarians. And if you are vegan or looking for dairy-free chocolate, you can enjoy all Willie’s Cacao dark bars and cylinders!
THE FACEBOOK LIVE CHOCOLATE TASTING
This first-ever Facebook Live Tasting Event will take place on March 14th at 6.30pm. In this live-streamed tasting extravaganza, Willie will join Ollie Lloyd of Great British Chefs, and they will chat about the best way to taste chocolate and why artisan and mass produced chocolates are so different.
Everybody can join and taste along at home, with time for chat and questions at the end.
All that is needed is The Single Estate Discovery Collection, a glass of water and maybe a bar of some other dark chocolate just to see how much soya lecithin and vanilla alter the flavour.
