Welcome to the first of our Regular Raw Chocolate Recipe Blogs! These will feature recipes that showcase some of our products and hopefully get your own creative juices flowing. Trying out recipes with the fruits of our Choco Wizard's labours must be one of the most enviable tasks and I am the lucky one who has been asked to do just that!

But first, a few words of advice: In our kitchen we are very much of the 'chuck it in and see' style of cookery and all measurements are approximate...

Linus was interviewed recently by Dermot Fitzpatrick from Marlow FM. In it he reveals why he went on Dragons’ Den and why he wanted exactly £72,000 from a Dragon. It’s not the reason you’d expect. The full 12 minute interview is here https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=z9ZBLVl0O-E

@sarahwillers "The flavour is fantastic"
@dragonjones "That's the best chocolate I've ever seen in the #dragonsden"
@dragonjones “I’m actually feeling quite pressured by the other Dragon’s offers”

And finally, when Peter Jones made an outrageous offer
Linus Gorpe “Do you now. Very cheeky”

Related to almonds, our Sweet Apricot Kernels come from Turkey. They have a more diverse flavour than almonds, with blossomy overtones and an undeniable sweetness. We like coating them in chocolate (of course) or making nut butter with them, here's a bit more info about them.
Apricot kernels are just that – the soft seeds from the apricot fruit. They come in two types: sweet and bitter. Ours are the sweet type – much more pleasant to eat! Apricots grown in Central Asia and the...

Recipe: Chia Fresca

Centuries old, Chia Fresca is an hyper refreshing drink, used now by ultra marathon runners, cyclists and people with hectic lives in the city. It hydrates you slowly, releasing water into the gut gently, rather than flushing you. Over the years, I've come to prefer it with no sweetener at all, but this is up to you. Enjoy!

Recipe:
2 tablespoons Chia Seeds
1 large glass of water
Juice of half a lemon or lime
Sweeten to taste with...
