morning, the tables quickly fill with patrons
eager to sample a cup of Koko Black's famed hot
chocolate. Brewed on the premises daily, the hot
chocolate is made from pure Belgian chocolate,
with not a hint of cocoa powder in sight.
Also a common sight at Koko Black is the myriad
of people huddled around the pristine chocolate
counters. Behind gleaming glass windows,
countless handcrafted chocolates of all shapes,
sizes and flavours reside, practically begging you
to taste them.
Treat yourself to a Belgian Spoil --- a traditional
chocolate platter offering chocolate cake, two
Belgian chocolates, shortbread, chocolate ice
cream and chocolate mousse. Perfect for the
winter months are the Chocolate Walnut
Brownies, served with vanilla bean ice cream.
While you're there you have to try the latest
addition -- a passionfruit-infused white chocolate
ganache, layered over a vanilla bean milk
Koko Black is a chocolate store that invites patrons
to taste and tantalise to your heart's content. Once
you go, you'll never want to leave.
Almost everyone loves chocolate, and those who
don't better have a good reason, but do you think
you could love chocolate so much that you would
change your entire life to make a career out of
this seductive treat?
In 2005, Heidi Ross swapped her hectic career
as a nurse to nurture what was once an academic
interest in the origins of chocolate and turn it into
a blossoming small business. To start a new life
consumed by chocolate, Heidi attended chocolate
and confectionery courses in Melbourne.
She wanted to make chocolate so scrumptious
that people would want to devour it in secret
because they just couldn't bare to share. "I was
devoted to creating quality chocolate gifts and
chocolate based foods that make people happy,"
"It is an extremely versatile ingredient that
lends itself to a variety of applications and at the
molecular level cooking with chocolate satisfies
my scientific curiosities and the artistic flair
required to make something beautiful whether
that be the packaging or the product itself
satisfies the creativity side."
The Curious Chocolatier is a wholesale
business located in Canberra that is gaining
plenty of attention.
