Working for many years in Pastry & Hot Kitchens I hope I have learned a thing or two about products and equipment. I offer a consultancy service to hotels, restaurants, cafe's and golf club kitchens. Sometimes we are too close to our own business to see how we can grow, Mark can help with this, with new menus, new products, new techniques in the kitchen.

Amedei Chocolate


The name Chuao brings to mind the legend of Mayan cocoa, the sacred drink from the primaeval earthly paradise where the “food of the gods” used to grow. Chuao was a true challenge for Amedei: difficult to purchase and process, this wild bean needed to be “tamed” as no-one had ever tasted it in its pure form. After an ageing period of 20 days, this chocolate – unlike any other – keeps developing its taste, improving its acidity and aroma.
