Sweet tooth Tuesday: Chocolat

When Canberra's Heidi Ross swapped her hectic career as a nurse to nurture what was once an academic interest in the origins of chocolate, into a blossoming small business the Curious Chocolatier emerged.

"Chocolate is such a versatile ingredient and every day I discover something new about it. I want to explore the possibilities that are open to us with this amazing and addictive ingredient. I want to "stir the chocolate pot" and push the boundaries of the conventional and traditional uses of chocolate."



Flavours include: Dark mint chocolate with Raspberries, Dark chocolate with Rosemary and Apricot and Dark Orange chocolate with Roasted Almonds, Milk Caramel Chocolate with Pecans, 70% Dark Chocolate with Coffee and Fennel, 70% Dark Chocolate with Strawberry and Sichuan Pepper. All packaged in their vintage inspired signature water colour illustrations... so tres chic!


Check out the full range at the Curious Chocolatier website and at Handmade Market on March 28th... can't waiiiiiit! Love it!!
