Whittaker’s A Passion For Chocolate Since 1896

| February 4, 2013 | 60 Comments

My Weakness … CHOCOLATE!

Just looking at the cover, I feel almost compelled to lick the chocolate running over the edge of the bowls on the book.  I have to say I have been a HUGE fan of the Whittaker’s brand for a very long time.  I also love baking and so this to me is such a winning combination.  Oh my, what recipe to try first!!  There are just so many, like Peanut Slab Cookies or the Whittaker’s Ghana Peppermint Pavlova … WHAT!!!  I was a bit lost as to what to try first but got recommended to give the Chocolate Volcano Cakes a go … oh man, delicious, rich and what a way to impress people with your baking skills!  That one is a must to try!

This stunning book can be purchased from our friends over at Might Ape here for just$29.99 (usually RRP $36.99)

More about the book and Whittaker’s

Whittaker’s is a much-loved Kiwi brand and a genuine family business going back four generations.

This luscious book takes a light-hearted look at the history of the business, and how the chocolate is made, and then gives a range of fully tested recipes. There are recipes from high-profile guest chefs, and a good range of everyday recipes from Whittaker’s Fa­cebook fans, plus notes on different types of chocolate and how to use them.

From marbled chocolate meringues and cinnamon cardamom blondies to white chocolate and macadamia cheesecake, Whittaker’s peanut butter chocolate and caramel brownie and a range of delectable hot chocolate drinks.
