We are delighted to be the sponsor of a chocolate filled night at the Edinburgh International Science Festival. The programme promises to investigate some of the past, present and future of chocolate with help from academic experts and professional chocolatiers - it's an interactive event - which means that some chocolate eating will be required! For more details and to book tickets (£15) visit www.sciencefestival.co.uk
Our Chief Chocolate Taster update is available on www.sweetestjob.co.uk and over on our Facebook page. We had a great day with the four finalists who joined us at the farm to undergo a serious amunt of taste testing. Their dream flavours include such varied ingredients as Scottish Tablet, Raspberries, Rose, Peanut Butter, Popcorn & Pickled Onions! We are now making these flavours and will taste these to help make our final selection of two candidates. Their flavours will be put to the public vote on 26th February - so we are going to need your help at that point!
We enjoyed a visit from the Japanese Consul General, Hajime Kitaoka today.The Consul General expressed an interest in visiting Aberdeenshire after reading a newspaper article highlighting the fact that Inverurie and the AB51 post code boasts the highest concentration of solar panels in Scotland. (our solar panel farm has something to do with that!)
