lovely, lovely chocolates

plaisir du chocolate, makers of the world’s best artisan chocolates – more lovely even than prestat, have closed, so the above is a pic (of my favourites) of the last box i’ll ever have shared. beautiful, tasty, if hugely expensive, they also did incredible pastries, teas, candied fruits and hot chili chocolate which i’ll also miss. must have happened very recently as their shop on Thistle Street hadn’t been open that long and earlier this month they were certainly still doing chocolate tastings, as i got an invite to one. Bertrand Espouy was clearly a passionate, brilliant and gifted chocolatier – and as they were charging a good £1 for each chocolate, its not like they were underselling themselves. also, i have nothing left to even salute their passing. very disappointing.
