A piece of advice from us all at The River Cafe.
Always have a piece of chocolate in your house. You never know when you will need some.
The question is, what kind? A simple bar, bitter and dark, a large slab of creamy milk, small squares full of roasted almonds or hazelnuts, a box of puffed rice, a round cake of gianduja or praline. Beautiful eggs for children of all ages.
We were lucky to discover some years ago the Tuscan chocolatier La Molina who create all of the above.
