Several weeks ago I went to my first Christmas dinner, a banquet hosted by Green & Blacks and cooked by Micah Carr-Hill (who boasts the fabulous job title Head of Taste, and is in charge of product development) and William Leigh, Taste Assistant who works alongside Micah.
Together, they developed a menu inspired by the Green & Blacks chocolate range. Not every dish featured chocolate, but all were delicious.
To my surprise, one of my favourite elements was the lentils served with the quail. To say that I'm not a fan of lentils is an understatement, so the fact I loved these was quite a revelation. William did reel off the recipe to me, but I didn't take it in, so will have to grill him on it further.
I also loved the tiny white chocolate disks covered with a pile of salty black caviar. An odd combination but it worked! The milk chocolate disks with dried potato powder reminded me of unconstructed maltesers!
And there were small chocolate-rimmed cups of Marmite broth which even some of Marmite-haters appreciated.
The other goal of the evening was to showcase some of their Christmas gift range, which as always, look very appealing.
So isn't it lovely, that Green & Blacks have kindly offered some for me to share with readers of Kavey Eats?
And not just one prize, but three, so definitely lots of chocolate to go round!
