Boxes of chocolate detective.
Description

These delicious eggs are made for us in France with a delicate hazelnut praline and Ecuadorian origin chocolate.

Along with the song thrush and robin eggs these are part of the Chocolate Detective's Curated Collection - her very favourite products from a lifetime of tasting chocolate.

"Europe's most familiar bird, the Blackbird is a virtuoso songster. The confident, full-throated melody of his song can be heard from dawn until dusk and is associated by many with the arrival of spring each year."

Descriptions and artwork are taken from Madeleine Floyd’s ‘Birdsong’.

Chantal making chocolate truffles

The Chocolate Detective

I’ve been obsessed by chocolate since I was child and always loved creating beautiful things. A degree in textile design and a student job selling chocolate in Harrods led to completing a small business course and founding Rococo Chocolates in 1983. After exiting the business in 2019 I set up the Chocolate Detective, and during the pandemic I worked alone out of a small kitchen in a gentleman’s club in Chelsea perfecting my recipes and designing my no plastic eco packaging. I also supported the Grenada Chocolate Company fundraising to help them through this difficult time. I have invested in an organic cocoa farm in Grenada and all the harvest is donated to the chocolate company who make some of the best chocolate I have ever tasting in the perfect circular economy that also respects the environment. I am the only person to have been honoured for “Services to chocolate making” (with an OBE from the late Queen Elizabeth in 2014).
