From the Castello Potentino web page:

Of all the events in 2017, Alexander Greene (host) is most excited about our collaboration with Chantal Coady OBE of ROCOCO Chocolates fame. We will be hosting her and the Rococo team here at Potentino. Chantal will be teaching you everything about making chocolate- from the raw cocoa beans to ganache-making.

There will be chocolate-infused meals (including breakfast) and workshops.

Guest chef Roberto Rossi of the Michelin-starred Il Silene will be concocting all sorts of delights in the Potentino kitchens for a special gala dinner.

Chantal Coady started Rococo Chocolates in 1983. Now in her fourth decade, four shops and five books later Chantal is still pioneering the movement for real chocolate, inspiring many through warm and inviting shops, delicately nuanced flavours and creative, beautiful packaging.

Amongst many other accolades, the Academy of Chocolate applauded Chantal and Rococo for ‘Changing the way People Think About Chocolate’.

One of her early customers was Joanne Harris and it is even rumoured that Chantal was an inspiration for her book Chocolat.

In 2014, after over 30 years in the business Chantal Coady was awarded an O.B.E. in the Queens Birthday Honours ‘For Services To Chocolate Making’.
