Artisan, Organic Chocolate Bars Inspired By a Small is Beautiful Chocolate Farm in Granada

There is enough truly scrumptious, artisan, organic and fair-trade chocolate in this capacious hamper to please everyone this Easter – with a union jack box filled with handmade, artisan truffles, delicate, silken ganaches and fondant creams, all made in the Rococo kitchen.  Oh, and have we mentioned the famous, oh so very gooey, seagulls eggs, filled with a particularly pleasing, salted caramel concoction and dusted with very fine sugar, to make them look just like the real eggs?  Or for the true, artisan chocolate connoisseur, the celebrated 71% salty Rococo organic chocolate bar or dark chocolate spice bar, created from Rococo’s own organic cacao produced in Granada.

Buy Organic, Fairtrade Chocolate and Protect Our Soil

Alison Jane says, “I’ve never forgotten the first time I met Chantal Coady, the Queen of Made in Britain Chocolate. For it is the quite remarkable Ms Coady, who more than anyone, has helped to transform our experience of buying chocolate, beyond our wildest imaginings. Every new kid in chocolate owes a debt to the girl who turned a passion for chocolate into the marvellous art of the chocolatier. For thirty-three years ago, Chantal dared to dream, and to experiment, transforming chocolate into bite size moments of pure pleasure, luxury, sophistication and provenance. “It’s all about the soil, the farmer and the cacao,” she once told me very firmly, as we stood in the lofty surroundings of Somerset House, at the Walpole showcase of Made in Britain excellence and ingenuity. I couldn’t agree more.

Who Made Your Easter Chocolate?

Chocolate is one of the most exciting areas of the organic, fair-trade movement. When you buy organic fair-trade, artisan chocolate you are supporting a wonderful chain of benevolence and love, that helps a farmer in Granada look after his family, send his children to school and take care of the living soil – and without healthy, living soil, there wouldn’t be a plentiful supply of truly authentic chocolate for tea, for falling in love over or for unmissable Easter eggs hunts. So go mad – find out who made your chocolate this Easter, and go organic, fairtrade and artisan – the world of chocolate has never been quite so sustainably intoxicating!

Chantal is Inspired by Her Arabian Travels as a Child

Rococo was the first luxury chocolate house to consider the whole experience of buying chocolate – from its whimsical, white paper wrappers to – the launch of its darling little miniature organic bars, scented with lavender, rose and cardamom, and all inspired by Chantal’s travels as a child through Arabia, with her father, who worked in the diplomatic service.
