Win Delights from Davenport’s Chocolate (RRP £42)

Britons have much to feel good about this year – from The Queen’s Diamond Jubilee to Ellie Simmonds medal-winning performances at the London 2012 Paralympic Games. Amidst this flush of patriotism, Davenport Chocolate have dipped into our national chocolate heritage to bring the likes of Black Magic and Fry’s Chocolate Cream kicking and screaming into the 21st century.

This retro collection has a decidedly modern edge. The Raspberry Jellies are dusted with real raspberry powder that gives them a tart burst of flavour. The Violet Creams may evoke tuck shop Parma violets, but thankfully lack their cloying perfume. The Coffee Cream is a sophisticated affair infused with freshly roasted Costa Rica coffee beans that give just a hint of red fruits.

Head Chocolatier Jane Williams trained under Swiss Master Philippe Burger, before setting up her own business near Newcastle upon Tyne in September 2007. Typical of so many contemporary British chocolatiers, her creations marry classical techniques with a love of innovative flavours.

For a glimpse inside Jane’s studio, check out Davenport’s Chocolate TV. Her antique enrobing machine, inherited from her Swiss mentors, mesmerized us. You can watch the chocolate wheel drawing molten chocolate to a height, before it cascades into a vat as a chocolate waterfall.

For the chance to win £42 worth of Davenport goodies featuring a Large Vintage Collection Box, dark Baharat Chilli Truffles and a Floral Collection Box of dark chocolate fondants. Simply email us at theclubchocolate@yahoo.com and tell us:

What was the famous tagline used in the James Bond-style Milk Tray ads from 1968 to 2003.

The winner will be chosen at random. Don’t forget to tell us your full name and address. We’ll also need your permission to name you as our winner. Good luck!
