LONDON, March 4, 2014 /PRNewswire/ --
Flo Broughton, the founder of choconchoc, will be featured on episode two of the new national television series "Mary Berry Cooks", hosted by TV personality and Queen of Baking Mary Berry, on Monday, 10th March, BBC2, 8.30pm.
This episode will include the very popular subject of cooking for dinner parties.
Chocolate is an ingredient in one of the recipes featured in that episode, which prompted Mary to visit Flo. The programme will show the visual attraction of chocolate and how that, combined with its unique taste, makes it so irresistible to everyone. Flo will be showing Mary tips on how chocolate can be used to create everything from chocolate goodies for the children to little works of art.
Chocolatier Flo (34), together with her father Kerr, founded choconchoc eleven years ago. This company specialises in the art of creating high quality sculptural chocolates using a unique layering process. The thriving international business has now developed over 200 lines of chocolate, all handmade by their 30 employees.
Flo comments, "We were delighted to be invited to welcome Mary into our chocolate factory in Rode near Bath. I am thrilled to have this opportunity to share with her and the viewers the secret of something we feel so passionately about. Mary is the Queen of Baking and I am self-taught in the art of chocolate making; together we made a fantastic team."
What makes choconchoc unusual is their innovative approach to giving each piece of chocolate an individual identity. These miniature sculptures are created in hand-made moulds to mimic highly personal themes - chocolates featuring fashion accessories, items of sport, animals, and many other objects together with personalised chocolates with messages and names for anniversaries, weddings and special events.
Flo adds, "Chocolate is everyone's favourite treat. That's why I am keen to show Mary and the viewers not only what they can do with chocolate at home but also to excite them with the way in which the product has developed into a luxury and a work of art."
Mary Berry and Flo Broughton will be featured on Monday, 10th March, BBC2, 8.30pm.
