Chocolate week could not have had a better start. On Friday 9th October, Divine organised a chocolate experience day for the lovely ladies and readers at SHE Magazine with the help from our friends My Chocolate, Tate and Lyle and FAIR Vodka. The day started with the wonderful Linda Collister, chocolatier and author of Heavenly Chocolate Recipes with a Heart, who gave a demonstration with baking with chocolate. Rule number one, chocolate melts in the mouth and therefore at a low temperature so never put chocolate on a boiling pan, steaming is much better.

Linda was followed by Chocolatier Hannah, from My Chocolate. She gave a potted history of chocolate and made truffles with the readers. After lunch (and champagne!) it was time to get down and dirty with the chocolate and all the readers got their chance to make and decorate their own truffles. I have never seen so many happy women covered in chocolate (the gorgeous spotted pink aprons from Sarah Smith).

To finish the day, we were treated to a cocktail lesson from new Vodka brand FAIR Vodka. The orange chocolate cocktail was absolutely Divine as were the French mixologists who gave the demo…
