Win Green & Blacks Christmas Gifts

20111026-TB2_0191medium 20111026-TB2_0523medium

Several weeks ago I went to my first Christmas dinner, a banquet hosted by Green & Blacks and cooked by Micah Carr-Hill (who boasts the fabulous job title Head of Taste, and is in charge of product development) and William Leigh, Taste Assistant who works alongside Micah.

Together, they developed a menu inspired by the Green & Blacks chocolate range. Not every dish featured chocolate, but all were delicious.

To my surprise, one of my favourite elements was the lentils served with the quail. To say that I’m not a fan of lentils is an understatement, so the fact I loved these was quite a revelation. William did reel off the recipe to me, but I didn’t take it in, so will have to grill him on it further.

I also loved the tiny white chocolate disks covered with a pile of salty black caviar. An odd combination but it worked! The milk chocolate disks with dried potato powder reminded me of unconstructed maltesers!

And there were small chocolate-rimmed cups of Marmite broth which even some of Marmite-haters appreciated.

The other goal of the evening was to showcase some of their Christmas gift range, which as always, look very appealing.

    Oooh! Another chocolate prize on offer – how can a chocoholic resist? I believe that the MILK chocolate comes with a purple wrapper.

  2. Miss Whiplash

    Chocolate for me please, Kaveeeeeeeee 🙂

    I actually think the purple is dark burnt toffee – I guess it does depend on your perception!

  3. Anonymous

    I also think it's Dark Chocolate Burnt Toffee, the cherry to me is more burgundy… (posted by Catreia)

    I have also tweeted!


  10. Julie

    It could be cherry, raisin & hazelnut or burnt toffee – very hard to tell what you mean by purple as all of them are purpley shades!

  11. Margaret

    I think it's Dark Chocolate Burnt Toffee. It sounds lovely doesn't it.

  12. rugbymum

    Mmmm, I love Green and Blacks chocolates. The Dark Chocolate Burnt Toffee bar has a purple wrapper.

    I have also tweeted (@rugbylovingmum)

  13. Niamhs Mum

    Raisin and Hazelnut looks more magenta to me which makes it a shade of pink, Cherry is more burgundy but definitely in the purples spectrum(although I adore the smell, I'm violently allergic to cherries and can't eat it) and Burnt Toffee is most definitely purple.

    Colour may vary according to monitors to all of you who googled it.

  14. John Banks

    It looks most likely to be the new Dark Chocolate with Burnt Toffee Chocolate Bar

  15. maxineflossy

    this is harder than it looks! am going to plump for the burnt toffee bar (after much research, trying to find the bar in local shops!), but agree with other comments that cherry and raisin & hazlenut are also purpleish too!

  16. Anonymous

    Ooh the new Burnt toffee flavour with crunchy bits of Yorkshire toffee in *mouth waters*

  17. Susie

    Burnt Toffee looks most purple but Cherry is a burgundy purple and Raisin and Hazelelnut a cerise purple.

  18. Kelly Martin

    Which flavour Green & Blacks bar comes in a purple wrapper?

    I would say Cherry as the other one that could be purple is more a magenta pink.

  19. Choclette

    Purple is a tricky colour to get right, but being a bit of a fan of the sour cherry, I would say that was purple.

  20. Sarah

    I would say that the most purple one of all is the Burnt Toffee with Dark Chocolate. Sounds scrummy!

  21. kats56

    I would say its the Raisin and hazelnut bar. There are a few bars that look different shades of purple so not an easy choice!
