Well, when I say “fantastic voyage” … I mean I went into hospital last week for a bit of surgery. A hip arthroscopy, in fact.  Keyhole surgery to put matters right after a running injury from almost two years ago that just wouldn’t lay down and die already. They go in with their little instruments, and a tiny camera, via two tiny...

I rather like the idea of chocifying the world.  Heck, the whole universe is better with a little chocolate shared around.

I think I’m quietly going mad at the moment.  Although, perhaps not as quietly as I imagine, most days My head is filled with flavours, textures and recipe ideas for new chocolates, recipe ideas for a cookbook, ideas for protein bar flavours, ideas for this blog!  All this is distracting me as I am trying to work my way through a number of tedious...

It almost feels as though Christmas has appeared out of nowhere this year, catching me unawares.   I have been flat-out working on my new artisan protein bar venture (yes, watch this space, protein bar aficionados … ) and this has taken me away from the blog and from recipe creation and testing.   I have also started making chocolates but pursuing...
