Just a very quick post to say I am in love with a new chocolate. It’s no secret that I do love my chocolate, and I’ve written before about Amelia Rope’s amazing chocolate.

 

Amelia Rope White Edition 3 - perfect gift for a food lover who loves great white chocolate

 

Well, now I finally have managed to get hold of some of the White Collection and, oh my! Now, I’m not necessarily a big white chocolate fan, but Edition No 3 is incredible. A combination of pistachios and Maldon sea salt, I am finding it hard to resist! I love a sweet salty combo and this has that, plus the luxury of the melting white chocolate with the crunch of the nuts.

It’s also visually stunning, as you can imagine, with white chocolate studded with little jewels of green pistachios. Just beautiful!

You can buy online from Amelia’s site but I bought mine in Liberty, and yes, I left you some! Unless the guy from the beauty counter who took for my chocolate and lipstick purchases (my favourite indulgences) went mad, as I raved about the chocolate and he was keen to go try!

Desert Island Dishes - the one condiment every food lover wants on a desert island

 

Just to bring the seasoning posts to an end, I was sent a very appropriate cookbook at the end of last week. Desert Island Dishes has been written to celebrate 130 years of Maldon sea salt. Pulling together dishes from the world’s top chefs, including Jason Atherton, Lawrence Keogh and William Curley, this shows how to show salt off, not just add a pinch to a recipe.

There’s all sorts in here, so something for everyone. I love my sweet stuff, so very attracted to the sea salt nut caramel tarts. If you’re a savoury person, then how about lemon, ricotta and basil gnocchi with sea salt baked baby beetroot and goat’s curd. Sounds delicious to me, and something a bit different.

I guess you could pull all three parts together from my last three posts, with the book, a grinder or salt pig and some great salt, to make a more unusual but tasty gift for someone.
