As a recent graduate and impoverished writer, my depleted bank balance and my love of food aren’t always easy to combine. I improvise equipment, use cheaper alternatives, and embrace the virtues of supermarket reduced sections. I can’t afford the best balsamic or the finest quality tomatoes. Heck, I’ve even used Lambrini in a risotto when things got really dire (if I ever make it in to the food industry in any kind of professional capacity, that one stays between me and you, okay?)
However, there is one thing that I can say for my financially dubious self: I know a bargain when I see one. So when I spotted an online voucher for The Cocoa Box chocolate making class, I snapped it up like nobody’s business – and I’m very glad I did.
