Quick visit from Valrhona

Valrhona_1[1]What's wrong with a lifestyle in which it is not only a pleasure, but a duty, to eat some of the world's best ingredients?

The pressure was on last week with three days of exemplary chocolate, which does tend to happen when you have someone from Valrhona in town. They were here to check out our local scene and to offer support to the Kiwi pastry team being prepared by Robert Bok of Sky City, who are entering the Asia Pacific part of the World Pastry Cup.

Of course anything to do with Valrhona involves the odd dessert or six, as it is important they personally check out the local state of play, so although they had limited time and could not go everywhere, they did enjoy Kate Fay's Rocky Road at Cibo, and two desserts from Hayden McMillan at TriBeCa. Pictured below is Hayden McMillan's Valrhona White Chocolate N2 with watermelon ice tea rocks, blueberries nectarines and bubblegum.

Move over Sydney, where they now based... Lunch at Prego definitely hit the spot!
