Ladies and gentleman, let me introduce to you the best, most incredible chocolate fondant. Ever. But first, I need to tell you how I got the recipe 😉 Some of you may know that last November I had the opportunity to do the “How to be a food presenter” course at Leiths School of Food and Wine in London – it was honestly the best thing I’ve ever done for my career. This course gave me the confidence I needed to start making all my videos which you can watch under the “video” section on my blog.
We had two fantastic teachers who taught us how to behave in front of a camera (it’s not as easy as we think), how to present and co-present a show, how to read a prompter, use talkback (not sure this is my favourite, haha) and obviously how to present a recipe and be entertaining (definitely not easy to achieve). During this course, we had the opportunity of having Mel Ryder teach us how to do a cooking demonstration to a live audience. As she was talking, she prepared these amazing chocolate fondants and I was obviously watching very carefully (you know me, chocolate is my guilty pleasure). When we had the opportunity to eat them, I found them so good I decided that I was going to try them at home. I mean…I’ll let you imagine it: gooey in the middle (as a chocolate fondant should be), rich, very chocolate-y aaaand…there is a surprise in the middle! Yes, there is a Lindor ball in the middle! That means that when you cut it to eat it, the chocolate ball is obviously all melted and just oozes out. Yes, in case you were wondering, this is what I call heaven!
This was one of the many fantastic experiences that I had on the course at Leiths. To anyone thinking of attending one of their courses, I could not recommend them enough. Trust me, you won’t regret it! Oh and here is their website : https://www.leiths.com/ 😉
