There’s a lot more to coming up with great chocolate than might be supposed - and Bettys are offering a glimpse of a few of their secrets during National Chocolate Week next week.
Kirsty Mitchison, Bettys chocolate specialist, will be visiting the iconic Café Tea Rooms at RHS Harlow Carr on Wednesday, October 14 then at Bettys in Harrogate on Thursday, October 15.
Kirsty, who tutors chocolate making at Bettys Cookery School in Harrogate, will be sharing her expertise and samples of Bettys finest milk and dark chocolate with customers.
It’s her 14th year at Bettys but Kirsty still loves chocolate and her dedication to making ever better and tastier confectionary remains undiminished.
Kirsty said: “People always ask if I still eat chocolate when I work with it every day. I do enjoy a small amount but it has to be high quality. It’s hard to resist our Cru Sauvage Truffles. The rich, dark chocolate is made with rare wild cocoa from the Bolivian Amazon.”
Kirsty was awarded a scholarship to attend the Richemont School of Excellence in Switzerland last year where she learned new chocolates recipes and techniques.
On both dates, Bettys’ chocolate champion will be appearing on both between 11am and noon.
