There isn’t much as comforting as a cup of hot chocolate on a grey winter day. It’s been described as ‘more
than a food, less than a drug’, and that definitely rings true for modern chocoholics who have those clever ancient Mayans to thank for transforming ordinary little cacao pods into the scrumptious confectionery we know and love as hot chocolate today. Try this cocoa recipe with a kick of chilli to warm you up.
Since our one true love is chocolate, we want to put it in everything this Valentine’s Day. So we decided to challenge chef Ballot to create a unique chocolate-inspired savoury dish just for MyKitchen. He rolled a scrumptious pork loin in a cocoa-coffee rub, that resulted in the yummiest, crispiest crust when it arrived on the plate. Served with carrots, baby marrow and a white chocolate and cranberry sauce (white chocolate, coffee and pork are a match made in heaven, by the way), we ate every last bite.
I am a chocoholic. I will mince no words about this fact.
