Coming Up Roses with Cinnamon Kisses & 58 other Seductive Chocolate Recipes

By Freya Ensbey.  

«Food and love is what matters most,» ~ Pana Barbounis.

Growing up in multicultural Melbourne, Pana Barbounis was
fascinated by handmade things, it wasn’t long until a friend introduced him to
raw handmade chocolate and he was hooked; beginning to travel the world to
discover more about this exciting product, where it comes from and how to get
the most nutrition through different cooking methods. Barbounis spent months
experimenting in his kitchen perfecting the taste of raw chocolate mixed with
essential oils and took to the streets on his vesper visiting trade shows and
restaurants to offer his product. He has since gone on to launch his brand,
Pana Chocolate, in 2012 around the notion of chocolate being an experience.

Barbounis now shares with us his secrets, hints and ethos to
healthy living whilst still satisfying our sweet tooth through this visually
stunning no cook, cook book, filled with raw, organic and vegan recipes free
from gluten, dairy, soy and refined sugar and packed with nutritious benefits
and antioxidants. Through the glossy pages, Barbounis has created easy to
follow recipes that even the amateur home cook could master, beginning in
chapter one with the basics to channel your inner chocolatier with the foundations
needed to perfect each element of the recipes and the guidelines needed when working
with chocolate.  

The Cinnamon Kiss is a standout in this book, with sweet but
woody flavours. Using cashews, vanilla, cacao butter and cinnamon, this mix is
a winner for chocolate filling and is the perfect accompaniment to that early
morning coffee, or sprinkled on your breakfast granola.

There would be a small minority of people who could say they
didn’t love a light and delicate mousse. Coming Up Roses makes a rich, individual
doughnut shaped mousse, perfect for a glamourous afternoon tea or an impressive
evening dessert with flavours of chocolate, raspberry and rose combining in
harmony to form one of the prettiest raw desserts you’ll ever see.

Satisfy your tropical desires with this super crunchy Sunny
Side Smoothie Bowl
and begin your day on the bright side. Mixing up your
morning with nut milk, banana, blueberries, coconut meat and cinnamon, topped
with your choice of granola or Pana Chocolate cereal, makes for the perfect tropical,
Summer escape.

For Pana Barbounis, food is everything; it is medicine, it is
experience and it is love. He believes that connection, experience and joy are
fundamental to a happy life and that food and wisdom are what unite us. Packaged
with the range of Pana Chocolates, this book would make the perfect gift for
that special someone in your life, offering more than just indulgence, it
allows the reader into the ideology of creating decadent foods which can also
be of great benefit to not only our health, but to our lives also.
