When we reached our second birthday, I decided it was about time for Kokopelli’s to test out the realm of food awards, and start entering a couple of products for accolades.
Last week we found out that we have won a Great Taste Gold Star Award for our Fresh Lime Chocolates, for which I am absolutely delighted!
Here’s what the judges had to say about them:
Beautiful little chocolates with a delightfully delicate design. Super texture – smooth and rich. The thin crisp shell enrobes a delicious velvety ganache. The flavour is well balanced and the lime releases as the flavour unravels. A nice refreshing chocolate. Well made and the lime flavour is lovely.
The Great Taste Awards are organised by the Guild of Fine Food, and are the acknowledged benchmark for speciality food and drink. Great Taste has been described as the ‘Oscars’ of the food world and the ‘epicurean equivalent of the Booker prize’.
Well, we are feeling rather pleased with ourselves.
