Who knew native ingredients such as bush tomato, wattle seed, lemon myrtle and blue gum smoke oil could work so well with couverture chocolate!

Q’s just helped our sweetest client, the Yarra Valley Chocolaterie & Ice Creamery, launch a new Bush Tucker chocolate range – and it’s believed to be a world first.

Combining the art of traditional European chocolate making and Australian native, natural ingredients have inspired a truly original range that also supports the local indigenous community.

The distinct packaging for the new Valley Bush Tucker collection adapts a specially commissioned artwork by a local indigenous artist and the Wurundjeri Tribe benefit from every sale. Fifty cents from each bar sold goes toward their arts and well being program.

Guests were treated to tastings of the eight different Bush Tucker chocolates at a launch event we helped stage at the Chocolaterie with the Wurundjeri tribe elders, Yarra Valley tourism and hospitality operators and media.  Bush tomato and jindilli nuts in milk couverture chocolate is our pick!
