Is there anything better? I can’t think of much. especially in the cooler months, and particularly when it’s local Southern Highlands chocolate!
The temperature is dropping and it’s amazing red wine weather too. I personally love nothing more than pairing chocolate and a glass of local Pinot Noir. My current faves are the offerings from Ms. Peacock Chocolate in Bowral and the Artemis 2018 Pinot Noir. I love snuggling in on a Sunday, nesting and nurturing with a Netflix binge, a soft blanket, my dogs and these sweet treats!
But Back To Southern Highlands Chocolate!
Did you know that everyone’s favourite Southern Highlands’ chocolate shop, Ms Peacock Chocolatier, is still home delivering as lockdown restrictions ease? True story.
Not only that, but the local answer to Willy Wonka has just been named as one of the finest chocolatiers in the WORLD in Lonely Planet’s Global Chocolate Tour!
In Great Company!
That’s right! Published just a few short weeks ago by Lonely Planet Food publishing, this guide to all the glorious goodness explores the best experiences for chocolate lovers around the globe. It features our very own local cocoa emporium as one of the top 11 chocolate businesses in Australia, holding its own against major players like Haigh’s Chocolates in Parkside, SA, Yarra Valley Cholaterie and Ice Creamery in Yarra Glen, Vic, and Temper Temper in Margaret River, WA.
Local pastry chef and chocolatier Lisa Morley conceives and hand crafts all her offerings herself and she sure has made an international splash.
Lonely Planet’s Global Chocolate Tour spans six continents and includes favourites from Lonely Planet writers across the world, including widely experienced travel and food writer, Chris Zeiher, who says, “we’ve always endeavoured at Lonely Planet to profile impressive small- and medium-sized businesses who are best-in-class at what they do — and these operations now need our help to ensure their continued existence.”
“You may not be able to visit these places right now, but you can have their wonderful treats delivered directly to your door.”
