Sweet Violet & Chocolate With Nettle

In this video, my friend Simone, a forager with 40 years experience, talks us through not only how to make this scrummy treat, but also her philosophy of foraging, and how wild edible plants have transformed her life.

Chocolate combined with sweet violets and nettle has, quite simply, got to be experienced! The deep, earthy flavours of nettle combine beautifully with the bitter-sweet taste of rich, dark chocolate.


1 large bar of organic dark chocolate (70%+ cocoa)
handful of nettles that have been mashed up in a food processor, or by hand
