It’s World Fair Trade Day this Saturday, 9th May. This will be the seventh annual celebration which brings together all the individual country members of the World Fair Trade Organisation to promote global awareness of fair trade.
In the UK there’ll be events happening in schools, churches, offices, streets and homes up and down the country. Check out your local newspaper for up to the minute events or click here to see what’s happening in your area.
Why not bake a very special chocolate soufflé to celebrate World Fair Trade Day; made using Fairtrade ingredients produced from around the globe. The recipe uses Divine 70% chocolate from Ghana, Cafédirect coffee from Latin America and Africa, and Tate & Lyle Fairtrade sugar from Belize so it really does represent a world of Fairtrade in a mouth-watering pudding!
You can buy all the ingredients to make Divine’s Hot Chocolate Coffee Soufflé from all the major supermarkets. The recipe comes from Divine’s cookbook Divine Heavenly Chocolate Recipes with a Heart which is available from all good bookshops. The collection of sweet and savoury chocolate recipes has been created for Divine by Linda Collister, who’s renowned as a baking and chocolate expert and was private chef to the late Queen Mother.
