Description

These delicious eggs are made for us in France with a buttery salted caramel ganache, and the use of a touch of fleur de sel in the caramel intensifies the flavour.

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

The Chocolate Detective writes, "Brightly billed purring puffins are my favourite seabird with their cute, clown-like appearance. They pair up for life and raise just one precious Puffling a year. One of my secret haunts, Lundy Island in the Bristol Channel, takes its name from the Old Norse word for Puffin, and is an important breeding ground for these beautiful rare creatures."

Artwork is by Madeleine Floyd who has two lovely books of bird illustrations, ‘Birdsong' and 'Chickens, Ducks and Geese.'

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).
