The ‘Goddess of Chocolate’ event made its TV debut last night as part of the first in the new series of Heston Blumenthal’s ‘Feasts’ on Channel 4 as he paid homage to Willy Wonka’s Chocolate Factory. A Diosa Delicious production, the event showcased this quirky gathering of some serious chocaholic ladies who came together to celebrate and enjoy chocolate in many forms.
Heston was focused on developing his ‘adult’ river of chocolate and got stuck into the bespoke ‘choctails’ such as ‘Chocolate Nutter’ and ‘Berry Chocolate Martini’ mixed by Sam Wilson of Bars by Design and Cocktail in a Box. There were also ‘choc shots’ delivered via a certain anatomical part of a metallic gold male torso, which he eventually succumbed to, alongside the ‘Goddesses’ who took full advantage of this one-of-a-kind chocolate cocktail dispenser.
The chocolate making ingredients supplied by raw chocolate specialist CHOC Chick were put to further use to make edible sweet treats such as truffles and chilli chocolate and were even used for beauty treatments.
Sam Wilson said:
“The combination of chocolate, women and the magic ingredient – alcohol – makes for a fantastic, fun evening, as Heston discovered! Cocktails are a major part of our business and this event format allows us to showcase our services in a really creative way.”
