It's Chocolate Jim ... but not as we know it!! Valhrona's newest.

There was dark chocolate, milk chocolate and white chocolate and it remained like that for years. But due to a slight miscalculation in the Valrhona development laboratories there is now a NEW chocolate and it is BLOND! And just like me (blonde) it is lovely, luscious and luxurious!  It is like the fourth emergency service for chocoholics!!

I was invited to a press information session for Valrhona who is a top range chocolate producer producing chocolate created for and by pastry chefs for the past 90 years.

The new Dulcey from Valhrona is perfect for moulding, pastry, coating, creams, mousses, sauces, ice creams and much much more. It has a not too sweet taste and intense biscuity flavour with a smooth, creamy texture.

As well as being introduced to this chocolate we were offered a plethora of desserts made with it, each one more delicious than the one before it.

It was a lovely way to be introduced to a new taste sensation!
