Making and Tasting Chocolate Workshop

"Raw" chocolate is being sold as the latest "superfood", but what is it and why is it getting more popular, asks Justin Parkinson.

 

Making chocolate is complicated. Cacao beans have to be picked before being fermented, roasted, ground down, pressed, mixed with fat and sugar and turned into bars and other sweets.

 

Several companies in Europe, the US and Asia have decided to alter one of the processes and no longer roast the beans. They insist that growers in Africa and South America leave them outdoors to dry naturally instead. The resulting product is called "raw" chocolate.

MULLED WINE

2 clementines

1 lemon

1 lime

200g coconut sugar

8 cloves

1 stick of cinnamon

nutmeg

1 vanilla pod

2 star anise

30g dark 70% chocolate

2 bottle of you favourite red wine

Peel fruit and place in a large saucepan with coconut sugar, cloves, nutmeg, vanilla, cinnamon stick and cover with just enough red wine.  Bring to boil, making sure all the coconut sugar has dissolved, and all bubbling nicely for 5-10 mins to make a syrup.  When syrup is ready, turn down the heater to a simmer and add the chocolate and keep stirring until melted and add the rest of the wine simmer for another 5 mins and enjoy!
