Belgian Milk Chocolate
Belgian milk chocolate and Australian grown and roasted almonds - A story that begins far from our Sydney based chocolaterie. A brand loved by chefs, bakers and chocolatiers provides us with Belgian Milk Chocolate for you to enjoy. What makes Callebaut Chocolate so special? With beans grown and harvested in the West Coast of Africa, Callebaut uses a fine selection process to ensure only the purest of cocoa beans are used in their chocolates. These beans are then processed in Callebaut's chocolate manufacturing plant in Belgium.
A recipe started in 1911 by Octaaf Callebaut, this fine Belgian chocolate has been enjoyed for generations, and we are proud to use this milk couverture in our Milk Chocolate Blueberries. Based in our Sydney Chocolaterie and lead by our team of artisan Chocolatiers, our handmade chocolates are crafted right at home, complete with a promise of exceptional quality.
Whole Australian Almonds
Historians have traced the origins of these naturally nutritious nuts as far back as ancient times, receiving brief shoutouts in the Bible as well as appearing in various archaeological collections linked to ancient Egypt’s King Tutankhamen. Almonds were, in fact, so highly valued that they were a prized ingredient in breads served to the pharaohs.
A little history...
Apparently, almonds aren't the only royal favourites. When Linnaeus named the tree Theobroma cacao, literally meaning "cacao, food of the gods", he wasn't far off. The Mayans honoured a cacao god while the Aztecs used cacao as currency and served it as libations to the privileged. When the Spaniards finally introduced cacao to Europe, only the rich could afford to use it as a tonic, with 'chocoatl' consumption eventually becoming a fashionable morning ritual in the Spanish royal court.
Morning, evening, monarch or not, treat yourself like royalty with our gourmet Belgian Milk Chocolate Almonds – premium Australian almonds delectably drenched in luscious milk chocolate.
