    Hi Caroline,I sent this to you by email, but it bounced, so I’m posting it here. I stumbled across your site when I googled for Green and Black’s Chocolate. I’m so pleased to have found your excellent blog. I spent a very enjoyable couple of hours going through all the posts. I’m of Indian origin but have lived in Ireland (five of those in Dublin) for the past ten years. I see that you have an interest in cooking Indian food. If I can be of any help in this regard, please do me a favour and just ask. Being obsessed with food, cooking and cookery books myself, I just look for any excuse to talk about it.Keep up the good work!Regards,GGP.S. Have you come across the new lavender chocolate in Superquinn? It’s a Belgian brand, can’t remember the name. I can’t make up my mind if I like it or not – the only solution to this big problem is to keep sampling until I’ve decided.

    Andrew – Unfortunately not. That package is now winging (or may have already winged!) its way a little further into Europe. I’m not sure if Blakes chocolate is available in England – but I do know that they’ve plenty of it available in the little Taste of Italy deli just down the road from me. Send me your address and I’ll see if the Euro Blogging idea can be extended a little further!Sorry to hear about the problems that you were having with my email GG – I’ve been having a lot of problems with it recently but, fingers crossed, it’s actually working again. Always glad to hear from a fellow foodie, particularly a Dublin-based one who’s also interested in Indian food! A bad Tesco being my nearest supermarket, I haven’t come across that lavender chocolate yet. Let me know what brand it is and I’ll go looking. What were you looking for in relation to Green and Black’s chocolate? Hope I was able to help.
