The process of turning cocoa beans into delicious chocolate is a process that’s rarely seen so I was thrilled to take a tour at Ratio Cocoa Roasters to uncover the whole process. Our guide is Melbourne’s own Debb Makin, one of the most interesting people I’ve met, with a background as a zoologist, wedding planner and – always, always – chocolate lover. Read more about her in my review of Ratio.
I made a couple of crazy good chocolate truffles while I was at Ratio: try these Orange, Cardamom & Pistachio Truffles and the amazing Chilli Peanut Butter Truffles. Need some more chocolate in your life? Try my Chilli Cherry Ripe or Chocolate Volcanos – who knew bliss was this easy?
