Our latest guest in chocolate chats on insta live was Mikkel Friis-Holm, Founder of multi award-winning Friis Holm Chocolate.
For me Mikkel's trademark is not only his experimentation with chocolate-making but also his leather apron!
Inspired by the chocolate duo Scharffenberger and Steinberg when chefing in the US Mikkel began his life in chocolate.
Hop on this link to hear more about:
what Mikkel was doing before chocolate (it may surprise you)
why Mikkel uses mainly Nicaraguan cacao beans
the importance of genetics
the importance of quality
how he creates new recipes
top secrets as to what he is planning for the future
and much much more!
To join our chocolate chats hop onto @amelia_rope on instagram every Tuesday and Thursday at either 2.30pm/1pm. We have a Q&A at the end of each chat for your questions so do always let me have any you may want me to ask.
You will need to have an instagram account to listen to the chat as sadly at the moment they don't allow other platforms to listen.
