I know, sometimes I feel like Willy Wonka myself and get so excited when I see these fantastic prizes! Up for a giveaway today my lovelies is a fabulous prize. As part of Crave, the Sydney food festival, Baroque Bistro (you know the people that hold fantastic macaron making classes) is hosting Willie Harcourt Cooze who is a modern day Willy Wonka and author of "Willie's Chocolate Bible".
The dinner is a five course 'Golden Ticket' chocolate degustation dinner with matching wines, held on Wednesday October 5th, 2011 (yes just a few days away so you must enter this weekend!). Sadly I won't be able to attend but you can instead! And you won't be eating just regular chocolate-they will be using Willie's unsweetened, 100% pure cacao products to create a collection of delicate, subtle dishes. There are dishes such as Suckling Pig Presse with Mole Negro, the original savoury cacao dish, using Willie's 71% Cacao Madagascan Black chocolate. Willie will be there to guide you through a tour of truffles and confectionary too!
