So last year when the opportunity arose to partake in an extraordinary chocolate selection box at an amazingly bargain basement price I jumped at the chance.
It was one of those fabulously priced trial offers for a certain high end chocolate company’s tasting club (the shop that has a name which sounds like it may actually be somewhere to rest your head overnight on a bed made of the delightful treat ).
I, of course, had to have a little photo shoot with my chocolates before I allowed myself to indulge in their deliciousness.
They were indeed the prettiest chocolates I have ever experienced and they tasted pretty fantastic too which is an impressive bonus. They had both style and substance, a combination I can happily sink my teeth into.
I can genuinely say that up until that point I had never had so much fun taking pictures of food. I think it was one of the very first times I tried my hand at actually styling food.
After the shoot I did my best to savour each and every bite of these decadent morsels but if I recall correctly the box didn’t last very long.
Can you blame me?
