Hallelujah! It’s that time of year when we can eat chocolate for breakfast.
We’ve been big fans of Baravellis for a long time. Mark and Emma have been making delicious chocolate for 9 years, you can find them in the medieval North Wales town of Conwy, and they’re a pair of jolly good eggs.
The first bean to bar chocolatier in Wales, they still remain one of only a handful of artisans who produce chocolate in this holistic traditional way.
Every spring they unveil the theme of the season – and this year they have managed to secure a partnership with Harrods of London and artist Camille Walala showcasing their specially commissioned haute couture Easter Eggs in the prestigious Knightsbridge store windows.
If you’re an arty type, you’ll love this years Easter theme – famous masterpieces by Monet. Renoir, Klimt and others. Emma’s beautiful handpainted eggs have taken the capital by storm and created quite the showstopper in the Food Halls of Harrods.
The happy news is that you can buy your very own masterpiece in their lovely chocolate shop in Conwy. We called yesterday and chose the very last Monet egg of the day depicting the famous Waterlilies series of paintings. It’s their bestseller, so you can grab yours over the weekend if you’re passing Conwy.
So this year instead of ploughing your hard earned cash into the Cadbury coffers, why not support a creative local business making a superb and delicious product – which will far exceed anything mass produced, I promise you!
They’ve got exciting plans too. If you call by the shop, you can meet Megan – trainee chocolatier – who’s recently joined the team, and you can hear all about their development plans for the future.
Let me know what you think? And which is your favourite flavour?
