Walking into our kitchen smells like autumn. The aroma of hazelnuts toasting on the stove reminds me that Easter has come and gone, that the days have become cooler and the blazers have been pulled to the front of my closet.
There is something about hazelnuts that is reminiscent of childhood, and so many people’s favourite spread, Nutella. When I bought some for crepes recently and read the label, I realised why mum had never given it to us as kids. It is choc full of sugar and ingredients that I am currently trying to avoid, so I thought I would attempt to create my own version, using raw cacao.
