I had intended for this post to go up last Saturday. How wrong I was. As I was happily tempering chocolate in Coco of Bruntsfield’s chocolate making kitchen, I was blissfully unaware of how the afternoon was going to pan out.
Under the guise of ‘taking photos for the blog’, armed with my handmade chocolates, I was led to a dark corner to the Botanic Gardens, where my boyfriend proposed. Never in my life have I been rendered speechless – an unexpected proposal will do that to you. Obviously all attempt to take pictures was abandoned and I was promptly whisked off to The Witchery to celebrate.
As you know I have given up chocolate for Lent, so the bag of goodies have sat in my kitchen for a week untouched. Rather than describe the experience at great length, I will say only this…sign up! An afternoon spent making chocolate was a wonderful experience, and I’m sure getting to eat the chocolate on Easter Sunday will be even better.
