Couverture & Co
Nestled in the historic line up of shops opposite the old Red Hill Skate Arena is heavenly little chocolate boutique Couverture & Co. Owner and chocolatier Jessica Brookes honed her chocolate making craft at Paddington’s much loved Bittersweet Chocolates, which is evident in the high calibre of chocolates on offer.
Made from the finest Belgian Callebaut chocolate and combining traditional methods such as hand tempering, dipping and piping with experimental and unusual ingredients and flavourings, the result is a small but unique range of chocolates not found elsewhere and worth a trip to sample.
Highly recommended for dark chocolate fans are the chilli ganache, cherry marsala or the delectable dark chocolate ganache with cocoa nibs. Tops in the milk chocolate range are the Banoffee (caramel and banana cream) or hazelnut ganache and white chocolate wise try the tonka – a white chocolate ganache infused with tonka beans.
Need to know: the majority of chocolates at Couverture & Co are gluten free, unless labelled otherwise.
