Fifth Dimension Chocolates  International award-winning British chocolatier, creating a sensory experience in fine handmade chocolates with classic and innovative flavours.

Russell is in Florence this weekend for the International Chocolate Awards World Final awards ceremony .
.
In the last few years, the ceremony was held in London at the Chocolate Show. However, this year the ceremony is held in the beautiful Italian city of Florence, with a special dinner at the awards ceremony Saturday evening .
.
Many world class chocolatiers and chocolate makers are gathering in this city this weekend - it is like the Oscars in the chocolate world .
.
Tonight it's a pre-award dinner gathering with chocolate friends from USA (@chocophilenyc), Canada (@somachocolatemaker), Taiwan (@fuwanchocolate) and Japan (@theobroma_koji_tsuchiya). Great food & wine @coquinarius - what more can we ask for? .
.
Good luck to all the @chocawards world final entrants, and looking forward to seeing many of you! .

The evolution of our filled chocolates collection .
.
Some flavours have been with us since we started in 2013. This year we have brought out 3 new flavours: #Akureyri (Arctic Thyme Caramel), #Grytviken (Whisky) and #SiemReap (Cambodian Curry), and updated our #Turin (Hazelnut Gianduja). These 4 flavours, together with #Warsaw (Blackcurrant & Pernod), have all won awards at this year's @chocawards International Chocolate Awards British Chocolatier Competition .
.
Have you noticed any changes in the style and flavours of our bonbons over the years?

While we love creating new flavours, sometimes it is just as satisfying updating an existing flavour and turning it into something magical .
.
Take our #Turin (#Hazelnut #Gianduja) - this flavour in a milk chocolate format has been with us since we started in 2013, but this year we switched to a new Piedmont hazelnut paste and then made the gianduja with dark chocolate .
.
The result? A Gold award in the British Chocolatier Competition of the International Chocolate Awards @chocawards .

Looks like @celinefrancis03 has made an important discovery this year - in the name of bonbons .

For a long time I wasnt interested in bonbons. I thought they would all be replicates of "Belgian pralines", these heavy stuff in which they'd pour a simple ganache or basic praliné and cover it with a (overly) sweet choc shell. 😣
.
Then I discovered "the others". The creative, inventive chocolatiers making magic💥🦄 @laurentgerbaud and his sesame ganache or 'beware of the hazelnuts'🌰 Lately, @chocolatasm sriracha honey peanut or lady grey tea bonbon or @bethschocolatenewton and her ginger or mojito bonbons🍹
.
And now: @5dchocolates Fifth Dimension Chocolates' Albert & Russell handed them down in Paris. The Montreal with brie 🧀 (cheesey smell, softer cheesey taste), Hong Kong with soy caramel (oh this sweet & salty mix), Meaux with mustard (nice kick), Paris with champagne and Grand marnier🍾 (more subtle) and London, with stout caramel (oh gosh, delicious balance btw sweetness, bitterness and astringency). Wow.
.
Now it is over. I need bonbons in my life.

How time flies. It was over a week ago that we visited Salon du Chocolat in Paris - the biggest chocolate show in the world .
.
So great to have seen many old friends and meet some new ones too. Our wallets are considerably lighter but we have a lot of nice chocolates to eat now .

Putting together boxes of chocolates for a corporate order .
.
The client seems to have made the choices of these chocolates based on the city names we have given to these chocolates. Wondering if this is where some of their offices are based? .
.
Previously we had clients who would choose the chocolates based on where their team members come from. Great ideas as a takeaway gift after meetings or team-building events.

Do you know that you can find cacao trees in the UK? There are several in @kewgardens .
.
While it is not quite the same as going to a cacao farm or plantation, it is a way to see the real trees and cacao pods up close in real life .
.
You can also find cacao trees at @chelsea_physic_garden and @rhswisley near #London.

Lovely post from @sjokoladesmaking.no, who was a fellow Level 3 chocolate taster from International Institute of Chocolate and Cacao Tasting 🍫🍫🍫🍫🍫. Glad that our chocolates have met his approval 😊😊😊😎😎😎 .

Way overdue I finally got around to order a selection of bonbons from the award winning @5dchocolates of my friend @akc1970!
And the verdict? They were amazing of course! Exceptionally well balanced and with very clear flavours throughout. The Grytviken whisky ganache was unlike anything I've had before, and the coffee caramel was just unbelievably good!

This is how you typically find our filled chocolates being displayed at chocolate fairs .
.
We split our chocolates into 3 broad categories - you will notice the colour of the city name on each label depending on this categorisation. The categories are: .
.
❤ red for the innovative flavours such as #Meaux (Wholegrain Mustard Ganache) and #Montreal (#Brie white chocolate ganache) .
.
🧡 orange for our caramels - all 8 flavours have won awards .
.
💙 blue for the more classic flavours such as #Turin (Hazelnut gianduja) and #Grytviken (#whisky water ganache) - these 2 flavours are suitable for #vegans .
.
We name each chocolate based on the place where our inspiration comes from. We can truly say the inspiration comes from every corner of the world, as you will find places from all 7 continents! .
.
There are 25 flavours in our current collection, and most of them have won an award in Great Taste Awards by @guildoffinefood, Academy of Chocolate @acadofchocolate awards, or International Chocolate Awards @chocawards .
